A Heavenly S-Cape For A Superman.
A Heavenly S-cape for superman!
(for Christopher Reeves)
Kryptonite crept in one night
under the constant pressure
between his mortal flesh
and the mattress
on which his dreams soared.
It burned a green hole
in his flesh that festered
and weakened his indomitable spirit.
But it offered him an S-cape from his misery
that he had not expected in his silenced
and then mechanical world.
And so his soul left this plane
faster then a speeding bullet,
able to leap immortality in a single bound
and then he was gone,
as the metropolis
rumbled on without him.
One can never step into phone booths,
which are also disappearing
due to cellular destruction
without thinking of his changes
and how he could have been so good
for this world if he had truly been
heaven welcomed your heroic entrance.
