all souls

as they ate all the souls
and scattered their ashes along the streets
what salvation are there
the others asked
there are none

the non residents
they danced in the midnight streets
and their children played in the middle of the roads
towards destiny they march
all souls

~as they stepped back
in time
getting younger
by the hours and days and weeks
wrinkles becoming beauty
arguments becoming embraces
distances touching, kisses
traveling in the eyes of strangers
i see them as myself
from forgotten pasts


[#] and I thought Id stop dreaming stranger days here :D

First Contact, Remixed

The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.
