Impossible things are happening

human marsupials sort of

wandering around my neighbourhood

legally defined as normal adults 

with their addicted adolescent sidekicks

all of them gestating not babies

but clever new electronic devices

in their cool and drooping pouches

They keep walking and walking

but they can’t find whatever it is

they claim they’re looking for

they’re restless automatons sort of

no longer comfortable in their skins

something got into the water

something got into the food

something got into the air

Guess I’ll have to live with it

what other choice do I have

as long as my feet are on the ground

as long as my head is in the clouds

as long as my heart is in my throat

but will someone please tell me

what’s really going on here

are we still human beings sort of

Or what
