January 17, Super Poet

my super powers
are rare and unusual,
above and beyond
what is usually
the norm

they are
in no particular order,
visibility,
the ability to hear what I think,
the ability to travel into the future
at a speed of one minute for every minute
that passes,
REAL TIME

if I remove my clothing,
I turn naked

I have even started to somewhat understand

danish.

January 14, Invisibility of Purpose

applying for a job
is a lot like
having the super power
of invisibility

not to be confused with
invincibility
although I’m sure
that’s how
the employers feel

I wander these streets
of applications
bureaucracy and
polished presentations
to the tune of marching drums
and trumpets
waving my flag
shouting, screaming
and yet,
nothing

Thanks Obama!
