Dear Commander Poem Project

Hey guys,

I’ve kept this on the DL because A) I don’t have much time to devote to it, and B) it’s kind of strange and I’m not sure what to call it. Poetry? Space-poetry? Outsider prose?

Basically, I’m working on a project called “Dear Commander.” In the Dear Commander series, I will post a number of poems in the format of an alien writing reports back to its chief. There is no description of the aliens, or any information at all, really. Just the reports numbered 1-100.

Here is the link if you’re interested:

And a sample:


Dear Commander:

Landed safely. No problems

with life support and the moon

was not the problem we anticipated.

There is life on this planet

and judging from the size and

apathy it is viral

and spreads quickly. All precautions

will be taken. More later.
