You don't have to be
afraid

anymore

His super-outfit is made from handfuls of oil and garbage blood and
pinned together by stars

Flying
around the room
like a

mosquito

Drinking all the blood
or whatever we
have

to save us
who

need to be saved



I whispered To the rescue
and sat
on the dead edge
of my bed
all night
and

all morning

My feet did not touch the floor

My heart raced

I counted my breath like small white sheep and pinned my eyes
open and stared at the door

Any second now
Any second
now



He saved my brain
from its burning
building

He stopped and started the bullet in my heart
with his teeth

Just like that

He looked down from outer space through all the clouds birds
dropping like weights

He looked out
from the center of the earth
through the fire
he was

becoming

in the doorway
and closed his eyes
his cape sweeping
the floor
