DISCURSIVE YOUTH by Brian Jacobs

reechoed in my urine

soaked sheets

 

as I thought the lights blinking red and blue

flying outside my window shade

 

were UFO’s

for in the 1970’s

 

that was a thing

on TV and in movies

 

greys probed

in the third kind

 

and where the neighboring

Humdinger

 

dive bar pilots drank

from the nearby base

 

next to the Stop n Go

where I stole

 

Butterfingers

cinnamon sticks and candied cigarettes

 

nuclear weapons aimed red east

rest on seal’d beaches
