Discursive Youth

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 nearby
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
