"if you could choose to have any superpower, what would it be?"
I don't remember every answer I've given to that question,
but I do know not all superpowers are fun
and there's always a chance
you won't be free to choose
which one you get.
I know, because I didn't get to choose my superpower.
in the room there is a chair - the only piece of furniture left.
it is being given away.
on the chair is a vase.
nobody knows quite how the vase arrived in the family,
but it’s like it’s always been there.
when the new owners of the chair come and pack it up,
the vase is gone.
when the starstruck dolphin's song fades
and smoke is washed away by cold water,
who will write the melodies
on damp paper with burnt edges?
