Aliens Have Come - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Where is the place that I can disappear?
Who will take this nagging angst?
I am a mask, a sexual identity
I am a position in a lost world

She decorates her face like a mannequin
Gives herself away not of lust but doubt
Disconnected, schizoid, souls without life
Hollow empty winds blow over the land

Pleasure only lasts a short while
Run for the shadows of anti depressants
Kiss the dark night of starless mirrors
Orgasms without love, without heart

Chains rattle in Kafka's castle
Strangers in beds of Roman feasts
Vows amidst luxuriant shared despair
Dreams filled with gray Viagra drones

Sex for sale by the money changers
Sex without love for the spiritually dead
Sex as a compensation for a lack of life
Sex as an anti depressant for joyless cogs

Bland poetry from the face lift
Soma from cable TV
Everywhere the herd grows
Invasion of the body snatchers

The Aliens have come

    You have nailed it perfectly. Sex is the dethroned god; now copacetic aspirin for whatever ails..and once it's gone, once the body fails, there's nothing but delirium for what once was; useless skin creams and we mortgaged the soul trying to save the this, love the chill you've captured so perfectly.
