Superman Is Not Real
by Claire Scott

Listen to a song which is a song of a boy seduced by batman by superman by green lantern which is the screech of a car a wicked thud hospitals MRIs CT scans which is the howl of a thousand tears a thousand tossed nights a thousand so-sorry-I-can’t-help-you’s which is the struggle of a young man who can scarcely see can barely walk body twisted torqued which is a song of a man who keeps on despite keeps on helping others despite keeps on offering the gift of himself despite which is a song sung in the key of love.
