Sometimes I’m a bear, bearing myself with
grace, nibbling, in a friendly way, your
careless hand trailing from the car window.
I have a weightless lubricant that can
transport anything anywhere better
than Amazon, Door Dash, a wishing tree,
or a credit card you don’t have to pay.
Disguised as a quiet teen who’s not cool,
I plumb wormholes in prisons you call school.
I disappear through windows you don’t see,
running quicksilver streets with my best friend,
the homeless wind. My dark’s a kind of light.
I might be Batman sent to rescue you
so be nice to me if you want me to.
