ode to those


everyone wants to be a superhero.

mary does.  you do.  i do.

what would i be, if i could be?  would i lead a double life, extraordinarily navigating with vengeance and punishment?  would i entangle foes in a clever web of justice? superheroes have capabilities that extend far beyond the average.
