Comic Book Superheroes

(Comic Book Superheroes)
Palms & kneecaps catch bodies—
Forgotten children, tumbling towards

asphalt trimmed backyards
Fingernails ground-down, ink stains

& alleyway mortar, battling death
Strangers watch limbs ripped away

Say something: voice injustice in loud
Primary colors. Blunt with lips and words

Hands shake as courage is built from the soles up
