The Eunuch walks across the ice

The eunuch walks across the ice on Pluto
Hoping to catch something
That was blown about by the wind
A half flesh, half vapour visitor from stellar space

She was a space amphibian
Who could live like flesh and blood
And then return to the cosmos

There was an old war office dug into an ice mountain
Where two high ranking aliens
Planned the takeover of the blue planet

Their long forearms and clawed hands
Had left black shadowy imprints
In the darkness. They were to launch their UFO
towards the sun but they had forgot their keys

the UFO was a remote controlled vehicle
moved about by a pen-pad from their central HQ
it was 9 lifetimes away
and now they waited for the rescue ship

the eunuch did not interest them they let him live
the space amphibian appeared
all fire and confusion, lurking in the ammonian desert
with a taste for blood – alien blood

the aliens had begun to whither
normally very beautiful robust creatures but time had
took its toll and turned them green

eunuchs made perfect astronauts and without
their sexuality they were expendable and easily
forgotten by the vamped up human race

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
