My mind was a blank when it came to tonight’s poem, but I found the following prompt: Write a poem about a superhero coming to your house and confronting you about something. Somewhere in the poem, you have to state what your superpower is.
I shouldn’t have left my window open
because in you flew.
in crimson folds
behind a back broad enough
to shoulder my every burden.
But who invited you?
I have the strength of a hundred women
to bear a hundred hardships.
Better that I rescue my own self.
If I need help, I’ll request back-up
If I need saving, I’ll call.
