With a lash of her tongue
Her words slashed me
And I came undone
I was no hero

The Fireman

Spiderman is his shadow
He is an indescribable hero
Omnipotent giant he extinguishes
That kind of hero cannot be
convincingly displayed on the screen

OLD

Old dirty man
pushed the cart
and rummaged
through trash can
Wore coat year round
Picked cans off the ground
Got run over
Saved kid in street
last heart beat

and a film set. You wonder
what dad and grandad,
as a hero, felt, at the border

Ankle Sprain

Ankle sprain
Not by slaying dragons
or rescuing fair maidens
No heroic story
but
fell down
a common step
No glory to be found
in living
beyond our warranty
