The Human dream became the Martian dream as we slumbered on our trip past the Moon. We could see colonies amidst landscapes pristine, teeming with strange Martian plants discovered post-bloom. The colonies bore resemblance to a moth's candescent flight, floating above onyx towers, shimmering perilous white.

When we met with the Martian people they were adorned with ivory carvings and had surrounded themselves with esoteric paintings of marauding faces. They spoke in strange tongues, switching between Martian and another, almost incomprehensible, clandestine tongue of barbaric intonation. They clutched ivory spears, but remained docile in our presence, and told us of the vivid dreams that had come to them during a deep, communal sleep that they had engaged in prior to our arrival, which was tinged with images of insemination and the lustre of venerable visitation by the Mars Moth-Man, who was oil-funded and had been delivering concrete messages to the people of Mars since the first settlers had arrived.

But, once we had truly set foot upon Mars— from outside, or perhaps within the realm of dreams which lived within our singularly multitudinous eyes— we could not have foretold, our collective vision was revealed to be a sprawling wasteland of infertile soil.

We need to be putting people on planets
before there are Putin people on planets
so we can dictate a culture
free from dictators
deporting the Dutertes from the atmosphere
that burns the arrows of the Bolsonaros
there's no progressive bastion here
so we must look forward in the years
past all of the Kim Jong-uns
even though their bombs might fall soon
so we can find the Roosevelts and Kennedys
to change the scorching hell ahead we see
but those leaders are obstructed
by the not so brainy
followers of Ali Khameini
believing ancient myths and men who grift
there's so much mud to sift there's no way to lift
what keeps us from other planets
through nationalist panic
and conspiracy theories
reaching the selective hearing
of god fearing *******
calling Trump their master
and the oppressed their slaves
we need to reach other planets
but we're still stuck in the cave.

There’s a 7-11 on Mars,
with parking for plenty of cars.
There’s never a wait in line
and you never get carded for wine.

There’s a huge monument on Venus,
it's shaped like a giant *****.
That’s a salute to Jeffery Bezos,
is it accurate and life-like - who knows?

A universe for the rich,
who found a technological niche,
with their business soaring,
to the stars they are roaring,
but for the rest of us, life is a *****.

Reading the front pages
Why? Because you’re beautiful
To an unread poet and Whipping posts away,
It’s untitled leaking..It’s just like water,
An October sky It’s just a memory
A cry for the quiet... Burns A candle
For the lost in translation about Fake love
Falling for If they wanted they would.
I care that Mars is a red planet
I’m still here is A suicide note
No one never seen a ghost
We believed, there none
even now we cannot see
Just watching mortality of human race
And humanity in crowd

Not to worry about

Mars is ready for mass
Or mankind is eager
To be alive there as the aliens
or living ghost

Blue sunset glowing
in the frozen red planet
brown dry dust shivers
