my alien niece

my sister gave birth this year
to an alien
how else to describe it?
the baby is strange-looking
like a chimpanzee
had sex
with a fish
I laugh when I see photos
and I can’t help it
how dare they?
this is my debut
as an uncle?
to a mutated fish monkey?
thanks, sis
I can’t wait to meet it
cannot wait to hold her in my arms
look into those wild wide eyes
and suppress laughter
