wearing an ac/dc t-shirt, ripped up jeans, and velcro shoes
all while wrapped in a cape made from your swaddling blanket
bestows unlimited strength and heroic powers upon you.
“a hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength
to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
the grandies offered me a chance
to choose my superpower –
flight, strength, invisibility, speed, or shape shift?
i chose invisibilty
got inside of the machine
they powered it up
when i came out
they confirmed that i was now invisible.
except for my feet
which did not fit in the box.
i can live with that.
“the things that make us different, those are our superpowers.”
