Two on a Rant

Once, I wrote poetry,

the black cat part of me.

Once, I flew on airplanes,

until they gave me migraines.

Once upon a time I

believed in ever after

but no prince proved perfect.


I loved the holidays,

reveling with friends drunk

on life, youth, and wonder.

We’d drive two hours

trying new eateries,

hiking unfamiliar

places, and cheating death.


My mother’s face haunts me

walking toward the mirror.

No more second chances.

No more princes courting.

Once, my poetry rhymed,

when words did not betray

their twisted definitions.

It wasn’t that long ago, that I discovered graphic novels, becoming a fan of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. What recently took me back to my eleven-year-old fandom of Wonder Woman, my childhood hero, was some lovely graphic novels for kids sent to me by Oni Press. I had no idea the comic books of my childhood had morphed into the exciting, color-filled, motivating stories bound for today’s children. I immediately thought of reluctant readers I had taught in sixth and seventh grades many years ago. How they would have loved the current, relevant themes of Fights, the cover of which would have tempted any twelve year old boy to dive into its story! And, the hilarious cover of The Sunken Tower even made me want to see who these creatures were endangering the obvious heroes who seemed to represent more than one time period.  Even the earliest of readers would have…
