“Let’s argue about bisexual Superman / while the world burns, / while they prepare us for war with China, while they take away our rights, / while they steal more and more of our power and our wealth, / while they rape our minds with advanced propaganda systems / to shape us into pawns in a global chess game. / Let’s argue about bisexual Superman / to avoid our fear of an unfathomable future, / to compartmentalize away from how nothing makes sense anymore, / to sedate the creeping sensation that everything we’ve been taught is a lie, / to squeeze off the strangled cries of that sacred child within us, / to hide from the insight that we are one with every part of this mess. / Let’s argue about bisexual Superman, / because it’s easier than being real …” (10/12/21)
