a martian steps into a boiling body

of water.  She looks towards the

scoreboard and then back at the

fish.  When she can’t see what

the points are, she takes off

her helmet

and her feet.  She can’t walk anymore.  There isn’t

a love interest at the bottom

and her spaceship flew back to earth

the day before.  There is green ivy over

the garden on the spaceship, there is a

nice table for coffee and

the joinery on the table es

wunderbar.  Her children don’t

remember if she was green or

brown, or where she was grown and

what oxygen does to her.
