Pg. 53 — UNTITLED SCIFAIKU by John J. Dunphy

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

John J. Dunphy

John is proud of the fact that he is one of scifaiku’s earliest poets. In other words, he’s both talented and old. Published collections of his scifaiku work include Stellar Possibilities, Dark Nebulae and pagan rites. He runs The Second Reading Book Shop in Alton, Illinois, USA.
