Blended

By Katje Kaase


The rocket strayed

Off course


Strange creatures

Red raspberry hair

Thin dangling arms

Translucent skins

But smiling eyes

With twisted grins


How unlike we were

Dark oval faces

Blue hands and feet

Sad pouting lips

We did not stare

We did not care


Peace overdo

Just blending...

With a different hue
