Hero

by Dan Garcia-Black

I never wanted to be
Superman,
Batman,
Green Lantern,
Iron Man,
The Hulk,
Night Wing,
Aquaman,
The Flash,
Green Arrow,
Shazam,
Element Lad
or any
comic book hero.

I only wanted to be
your man.

But, Baby,
you were so
uncommitted,
bi-polar
and ac/DC,
it would have been
a MARVEL
if we could have
made it.

I guess, I’ll just
have to settle
for being
Lonely Man,
from now on.
