Over at NaPoWriMo our challenge today is to write a persona poem. This means writing the poem in the voice of a superhero/super villain. Of course, a myriad of ideas flashed in front of my eyes from Shaft to Blade, Batman to Spider-Man, all the way to Yoda himself. I went out of my to take a “Superhero” Personality quiz. It turns out that I am “Wonder Woman”.
Of course though, the source of inspiration for this poems is someone else completely.
Lock and Load
By: Meena Rose
Telepathic, telekinetic, enigmatic;
Yes, that’s me – afraid to look me
In the eye? Afraid that I will see
How you have fallen for me?
I am a mystery that takes a while
To unwrap – do I see you checking the
Time? Do my blade of psychic energy
Scare you? I have it under control.
No, I am not Jean Grey nor Kwannon. The
Hand saved me, changed me – Does that
Bother you? This amalgam of miss identity?
Do my origins scare you?
Poet’s Note: I was referring to Psylocke who served a big tour of duty with Marvel Comics and I really hope she gets her own movie – much like wolverine.
