isn't this what you were looking for?

capes and grates

when my little brother was 6
he thought he was Superman
and jumped off a slide
and broke his arm.

when I was 9 I was walking
and tripped on a grate
and broke my wrist
instead of learning to write
cursive I got to type book reports.

and the other night we sat there on the couch
and choked on the thick air swollen
with all sorts of things.

I would like this, but I've always tried not to believe in poems.

You sir, silenced me when you were watching The Departed,
I was wondering about the Tokyo Police Club and Vampire Weekend show that is next week
