Radioactive Sonnet



I want to draw comics.

Spend study halls perfecting

Superman’s triceps.

One paper cut ends everything.


A radioactive sonnet

bites me like a spider.

I become a poet,

unlike Peter Parker.


Now lavender whales

pod the sky

where spandex sailed.


Now the sky’s

full of ghosts that

need laughing at.
