poemetry

a way to explore thoughts, usually first thing in the morning.

twenty jan

my heroes:
the bad guys
in anime
who come up
with dire plans
to destroy
the world.
and, if they are
deeply and hideously
evil and powerful,
they’ll destroy
the whole
fucking
universe.

they are always 
thwarted, of course,
and always by
a plucky band
of pesky kids,
frequently including
that one girl
whose heart is breaking
too much
to let this
poor hurt villian
do something
so awful.

if only
the real world
were that easy.
if only
i could be
evil enough
to be saved
by someone
i made
that sad.
