U say U love me
More than I do
U talk about us
Like I’m the princess
And U’re my hero
U disappear a century
Then U appear once
Like a full moon

Unsung

She silenced me
With a lash of her tongue
Her words slashed me
And I came undone
I was no hero
But yes, unsung

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

as a hero, felt, at the border

Another fallen hero
May he rest in peace

from
good intentions
