An Incident on Bernard Boulevard


Traversing Bernard Boulevard at night,
she longed to escape her loneliness.
An effulgence of light illuminated from the sky and lifted her off the pavement.
She smiled, her arms outstretched.
Rubbing their hands together gleefully, the six-eyed aliens
from a far off galaxy, awaited the arrival of their newest female specimen.

And then she arrived.

“Okay guys, I’ve been aboard this spaceship an hour already.”
said Lorraine to the three aliens. “And let me tell you, the
place is a mess. I mean, the windows need cleaning.
The floors need sweeping. The sink in the so-called kitchen
is full of what I believe are dirty dishes.
And let’s not talk about the aromas coming from the bathroom.
Come on people. You have three pairs
Of eyes and two pairs of arms each. Start using them.”

The three aliens looked at each other –
eighteen eyes all agog.
And agreed to turn the spaceship around
and head back to earth.
“We’ll dump her and get another one.” Said Ligge.
“They can’t all be like her.”
Little did he know.

  5. A pleasure to read. Probably not a pleasant feeling to be eye balled by these aliens.
