Morning Dip

I dream
That I’m diving
In a diamond

Swimming
In your hard-earned
Shape

And leap
Like I’m floating
Free from gravity

Flying
With some trademark
Cape

The New Black and Blue

Hardly practical as camouflage,
nor particularly fashionable; sure,
they might work together as part
of your general ensemble, but

purple and green make for
a rather garish combination
(although I suppose that in
a world where people wear

underwear over their pants
everything is fair game).
Neither are they colors that
strike fear in the hearts of

men (super, or otherwise).
But still, so many villains
(specifically super) defer to
these shades when planning

their outfits, as if this carefully
calculated appearance could
somehow distract their enemies,
and bring their evil plans to

fruition. Perhaps the emerald
hues reflect their desires, while
shades of violet emulate the
grandeur to which they aspire.

Or perchance it’s a pact among
these superpowered malefactors
to make their allegiances known,
so when setting off on vile schemes

the protagonist knows where to go.

Say it Ain’t So

Is it true
We like a superhero
Born of
Alley gun-fights,

 Spider bites,
Versus
Kryptonite meteorites,
Birth rights?

Suits of
Iron things
Over
Glowing rings?
