Plutonian Subsurface Porpoise

Pluto might have oceans underneath
it’s outer skin.

There could be alien mermaids
With seashell icicles covering their breasts,

swimming just a handful and a half
light years away from us.

Maybe my great uncle was right when he told me
dolphins are from outerspace at that one family reunion.

They could have been mermaid steeds
that got a little too cocky

or perhaps they’re on their rumspringa,
pouring alcohol down their blowholes.

When they finish their return shuttle,
I’m sure they’ll let me squeeze between their flippers

in the middle seat of the back row
while they listen to Tom Petty and fly back home.
