Instinct

by Hot Lizard Boy

I am frozen in my attempt
To bestow an innocent gesture of simple affection
On her cheek.
She seems to suspect
I am driven solely by primitive instinct
And I find this rather insulting
Because although I cannot claim
to be a credit to my species or my sex
She certainly does not have what it takes to stir me

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

*No tales of probing, please.
