Alienation

by Chuck Barnitz

Alienation does not originate
In a distant system
Alienation is a virus that we carry
In the clenched rosebud of our hearts
Undocumented, expressively aphasic,
We are the aliens among us.
We recognize each other
And say
Nothing.

I want to hear your story of alien abduction-turned-romance.

*No tales of probing, please.
