Yellow Abduction

November 15, 2009
I give Kyle, my son, his lunch as he walks out the door,
it is 7:13 in the morning, and the sun is just beginning to rise,
a chilled 42 degrees out, and I double check to make sure Kyle
has his coat.

He doesn't know it, but I watch from my bathroom window,
I watch Kyle walk down the street as the sun begins to peak through
the trees
and he stops at the corner, waits.
And no one's sure what he's waiting for.


A thundering UFO comes rocketing through the clouds
and I stand there in shock and amazement, peering
through the curtains of my bathroom window.

From it extends a ladder, and Kyle; completley nonchallant;
climbs on in.
They've taken my son, in that UFO,
as the ladder folds back in.
And to my uneasiness, I try to relax,
and put on a small, wry grin.
