The Saucer


I just missed it.
Just caught a glimpse of it,
stretch the way I breathe
across the day.

“I saw a tail dragging,
leaving spaces
burning in the blue;
a saucer crossing
my lines of view.”
“It pulled over across the grid,
and dipped a bit
as if to tell me what to say,
then out
like long and fast
It dropped behind the sun.”
But just caught a glimpse
of this saucer,
burning in the blue.
(a distant signal sent to you)
Like spending endless days
sensing something in the skies.
