IT’S NICE NOT TO WRITE

It’s nice not to write

about a female black-clad Alien

introducing Our Local Child Psychiatrist

for His Talk @ The Community College

in Yarmouth yesterday

It’s nice not to write

about Me in black

sitting on My Front Stoop

in the late afternoon sun

drinking Red Rose Tea

or am I an Alien too?

I am An Infiltrator

–oh– I have to look that word up
