My work in the debut issue (Fall 2021) of The Flying Saucer Poetry Review.

UFO lab
while strapped on
the dissecting table
an alien shoves
a pillow beneath my head

high-stakes chess games
aboard a UFO
if I defeat each of my captors
they have promised
I will be released

in flight
aboard a UFO
to think I once believed
my Hennessey Venom GT
was fast
