Parallel genes

culture difference shows up
when it comes to comics
your western super heros
my eastern mystic figures
like two far apart genes
without any cross-over

My name

many had asked about my name
I told them
they repeated diligently
I heard lots different names
I had learned to respond
to the sound of all those names

the list expanded to unmanageable
so I made up an easy to sound name
it has been great

just sometimes
I miss my name
it is actually
a very beautiful
