The Anti-Hero

24 02 2010

I love you like the soil loves its worms
fond decomposition and weathering mold
tender demolition with loam enfolded in sand
my castle crumbles in the tide of your terms.

Batman is Bruce Wayne and Superman Clark Kent
every hero has his dual identities
it protects them from the paparazzi, you see
I wonder where my civilian clothes went?

I’ve been pulling long hours to make the world safe for love
I can’t even get a weekend in order
to disguise myself as a mild mannered reporter
you can have this hero job when push comes to shove.
