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.
