Nightmares Fall - Poem by Stan Petrovich

The sky is crowding!
Far off in the
Milky Way a civilization far more advanced is crushed,
Their domed city but a squeezed- out blemish on a dead planet;
If they have come, we start awake with fearful dreams;
If they have seen,
We cannot see them;
If they begin to conquer,
All that we fear the most
Comes true.
