Tesla’s Reverie by Aaron Wiegert

He takes down a bottle
from above the fridge
and asks me about Roswell

It’s where we got our technology
he explains, a government cover-up
that isn’t taught in schools

I ask him about Tesla
…he was a Christian
and maybe an alien who conceived
of the satellite and the wireless device

But the past and the alternating current
are born to a false creator and we are
deceived by the origin of energy.
