Dr. Quigley Struggled with the Idea
Dr. Quigley struggled with the idea,
but after months of debate
he went forward with the notion
that it was time to record
his most unusual observations:
Made contact with a race of aliens.
Subject was female, complained
of pain in the lower abdomen.
Diagnosed cervical cancer.
It all comes down to the cervix.
He was nearly certain of it.
He remembered his travels
after completing his last degree.
He waited for hours on the side
of Mt. Ararat for the solar eclipse,
short ring of fire, long circle of life.
In the valley below him,
he noticed a pair of goats mating
in the forced dusk of a twilight
no one else would ever believe,
his mind certain of images
no one should see.
