worlds colliding

by mickharris

i have not been here for awhile

what seems like forever, as always

(i think it’s been a week or two).

 

poetry is forthcoming in two places, i will have links available to whore myself out, as we do.

with pride, and love.

 

listening to grant morrison on a podcast, thinking wait, why don’t i

write about the superheroes that i love.  why don’t i do this?

my poetry has to be SERIOUS, ABOUT SERIOUS THINGS AND FEELINGS

somehow it never occurred to me to play around, to combine these two things

like i can’t be a serious writer if i like comics.

well.  fuck that.

 

the reason i love them is because they strain, reach toward the sky and stretch themselves beyond anything that we can do

but not anything that we can’t dream,

or try for.

that is why they exist.  they are american in spirit, our soul, tapping us on the shoulders to remind us that hey,

you are better than the sum of this shit you live in

you really need to try harder.
