cartoons

Samuel Akiva Pui-Ying Huang Skeist

when I was little
watching movies cartoons
it was always good
guys versus bad guys

i always preferred the bad
guys
well first off they always had better clothes
blacks reds
they never wore nonsensical capes spandex or latex boots
some had horns claws and fangs
i liked that
they just seemed harder
cooler

i can’t remember the last time I watched a cartoon
it’s been months since I went to the theater or rented a video
its been much longer since life was as simple
as the good guys
against the bad guys
now its more like me against me
