I am feeling less stressed and more relaxed now that Mithila Review's latest issue is out.
My editorial is called "This Extraordinary Being" — yes after the famous #Watchmen episode: https://mithilareview.com/shah_12_19/
I guess I was still dealing with the effects of Nostalgia — the memory pills — from watching #Watchmen when I wrote that editorial and an eponymous poem. I didn't want to include the poem in the editorial because of obvious reasons.
I thought it'd make an interesting post — so here it goes:
This Extraordinary Being
After Watchmen (Season 1, Episode 6)
No, you don’t
want my names —
this bloody job.
I was born a crime —
You can’t hang,
shoot, burn or bury
me like a dog.
No, no, no —
I’m not a superhero,
monster or alien.
Thank you for being our patron — if not a superhero!
