Short Abduction

by Denny Marshall

Twenty minutes pass, a full-moon midnight,
Ship above shines a searchlight on your home.
Abducted undercover on a starry night,
Go from the dark into a large, shiny dome.

A short wait and then returned to the land
Like fish thrown back, too small to keep.
Time pours out slow, like hourglass sand.
Return to dreams, return to the deep.
