Author's Note: So, my Creative Writing teacher came up with the very original idea of putting a pop-culture character in a new setting...I think I can work with that.

I don't own the X-men, by the Way.


Out of Place


He bought the ticket online

he used Hank's card

the Beast won't notice that charge

He only decided to go

after everyone else decided no.

They'll think he's at a bar

drinking German beer

eating a rare steak

smoking a fat cigar.

They wouldn't understand this gentle show



The dancers spin and fly

A grace he shows in battle alone

they show in their pointed toes

plies and pirouettes.

No one notices the short man

with tufted hair and a line-backer build.

No one notices the way the chair

groaned under a weight he doesn't show.

No one looks for a mutant at the ballet.

No one thinks a Wolverine would visit Swan Lake.







ps, this doesn't count as getting over my writer's block since it was for a college assignment. sorry

flyingsnake

pps, i couldn't get the formatting to stop removing my indentions and making everything double spaces so sorry about that too.
