For the Record

???????????????????????????????????????

FOR THE RECORD

Please, Honey, don’t run away.
I swear I can explain.

Tentacles are more useful than thumbs.
Really, they’re not so strange.
Think of pachyderms;
their trunks are misnamed.

And with these extra limbs
with which to cuddle you…

Such disgust is what’s kept me
hidden in this flesh-toned suit.

Do I complain about the
shortness of your tongue?

No, wait! Don’t go!
My anger’s sheathed,
just like the cilia that pass for my teeth.

Perhaps one day you’ll realize
we’re all the same inside.

Meanwhile, you need not fret.
The suction-cup hickies will fade.

  1. The mental picture of an alien pleading with his “honey” for acceptance after he/she/it has revealed he/she/its true form actually tugged at my heartstrings. Any chance of a sequel so I can find out what happens next…maybe a series?

    Very Best Regards,
    Eric
