For quite some time I have been meaning to combine my interests in comic book heroes, ancient Japanese poetry and strawberry milkshakes. I really couldn’t work the last one in but if you and I are ever at Sonic together remind me to pick some up.

Anyway, here’s some stuff I wrote while I was supposed to be paying attention to a presentation during my day job:

Emma Frost


The Hulk


Nick Fury

Movie Nick Fury

As a quick note, I’d like to give a shoutout to all the brave superheroes that fight on all those world-retconning crises so that we don’t have to. The two haiku that follow are for two of the heroes most often affected.




Anime Witchblade

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Ben Grimm

The Flash

Red Sonja




The Author



Nobody really knows what Rodrigo's deal is. He is a perpetual enigma, an unknown quantity, the X factor. He's the new kid in school, the unlisted number, the person all your friends talk about, but you've never met. How can one person be so mysterious, you ask? THAT IS ALSO TOTALLY A MYSTERY! You can try to keep tabs on him on twitter by following @fearsomecritter, but that probably won't help.

      Here I thought I was the only one to catch the improper 5-6-5 syllable format.

      It just lacks one word.
      More pressing a question is:
      What did Logan mean?

    I hope you will again stop paying attention at your job sometime in the future, Rodrigo. We could definitely use more of these.
