Under Surveillance

A hovered spaceship
A city under surveillance
Presence imposed, insolently

Run as I might,
Fly as I might,
I escape not its gazing reach.

In that panoptic disc, they sit.
Through the tinted screens, they peer
And wield, that extra-terrestial power

A hall of justice, they say.
A UFO, we say.
If only fear would fly away.
