You are here


Shazea Quraishi

What does it mean if every night for a week

you dream that you are Batgirl

flying around the roofs of malls with Batman and Robin

and you can’t decide which one you like best


It would have to be Batman, really

because he gets more respect

But then again, just how old is he under that mask

if the series is into reruns?


You flit between the two of them

admiring the legs,

wondering if Batman wears a corset

and asking yourself if you should be wary of a man who still lives in a cave


And what about sex?

When it was over, would he just leave you hanging

upside down?
