The Hungry Devil

The Serpent Dust Devil of Mars

I wonder if the dust devils on Mars are thick and gritty.

I also wonder, 

if  you were  on Mars  and a Devil pounced on you, would it fill your mouth and nose and lungs with  Mars’ rust colored flesh  in one heartbeat or two?

And after it moved on, would it leave you under a mountain of dust?

Or would the Devil scoop up the little tiny bits of you that it blasted away from your bones and would it take you sailing through an alien sky that turns from from blue to butterscotch to pinkish red and would those little bits of you sparkle like falling stars when it dropped you and let you go?
