MARTIAN INCURSION

In the shadows they lurk,
eyes illuminated by an inner light,
the fright of their visage is surreal.
You feel uneasy, your breath
wheezy and shallow. Saliva dripping,
heart skipping a beat, your feet
are leaded as if imbedded in
the hard clay ground. A sound
high pitched and squealy,
really annoying. Steam rises
and their size increases,
V-shaped creases forming
mouth-like openings.
Hoping the flashing lights
are an emergency vehicle.
You just had an accident.
Turning slowly, you are a lowly
human life-form with opposable
thumbs. Hairy and scary,
not clean and green; not like
the hidden creatures seen
with the odd features who have landed
They are terribly sorry. They took
a wrong turn at Alpha-Centauri!
