AN UNKNOWN ENTITY

by

J.D. Roa

 



It is reported that an unknown

Entity has taken shelter in the remote regions of

Foothill, away from human

Hurt—

Some say he is an extraterrestrial from Mercury,

Others, a chupacabra, but most lean toward the

Former after citing incidences of his bioluminescence;

Domesticated pets and household items have

Mysteriously vani—

Mommy, maybe it’s Daddy!

Sweetheart, don’t yell while Mommy is

Reading the National Inquirer—look, sweetheart,

Here’s an ad—wouldn’t a smaller apartment be

Nice for the two of us?
