John J. Dunphy ~ Trois Scifaiku

his pen-packed pocket protector —
a square
in this parallel universe


martian colony
walking with my child
I point to a twinkling light
“daddy is from there;
it’s called earth”


eyes in the back of her head —
the elementary school’s new teacher
from another planet
