Nah, That Couldn’t Happen

by Steve Mitchell

hey

what if teeny aliens

landed

unnoticed

in the house

with

their teeny

red

ufo

like a button

and nobody

noticed

because

well

the clutter

and we’re busy

so busy

their teeny

voices

yell

and what if they

had amazing

technology

a fast way to close

shirts

and coats

without buttons

(or velcro)

and the aliens wanted

to share

to trade

but, you know,

they left

when nobody

noticed

because

hey

they don’t have all day
