Greeting Card

H is how she hatched me from her brain pod, 
J is for the jar she grew me in. 
Y is for the yellow of her eye-stalks, 
G is for the green glow of her skin. 
R is for the races that she’s conquered, 
X is how her X-rays warm my hearts. 
N means that she never needs new slime sacs, 
P is how she prunes my extra parts. 
O is how she orbits lesser homeworlds, 
L is for her light-bombs which destroy. 
Put them all together, they spell HJYGRXNPOL, 
I’m proud to be her special little boy!

  1. I LOVE this! Is this one of the poems from the darker side of Andy? This one is disconcerting, too, but you are so skillful, you make it "FEEL" heartwarming!
