Dreamed 1973/10/19 by Wayan
All fear the Monster in the wood
Except that girl in the russet hood:
She's seen him cower, sans his pair
The Hero tracks the Beast into light,
The house-people, Humanists all, trick
Over the years, Monster-Hero becomes
Hero's return! In the Human Lodge, a lithe
But the Hero wed a Princess. Taken! Hood
Caught reaching for candy, Hero longs
He stalks lodge-corridors, turning on
But I'm not married to a Princess. So
machine-mind, Hal from 2001, is spying
Our captain, Chirang Faa, pads in. She's
Orders us to ream one iffy ion jet.
Oh, Chirang always knows what must be done.
I'd rather be mounting Squirrel Girl.
IN THE INTERESTS OF FULL DISCLOSURE
Writing this poem, I skipped a late scene--a bike crash and a long dull walk to the bike shop for repairs. It said nothing new; all on that long wobbly hike, I still just wanted to be riding Squirrel Girl.
DISAMBIGUATION, 44 YEARS LATER
There's a Marvel comic about a chubby girl in a squirrel suit with Rodent Powers (Her motto: "Eats nuts, kicks butts!") But Steve Ditko created her only in 1990.
This dream, 17 years earlier, is not about that Squirrel Girl.
My Squirrel Girl
Clearly not my Squirrel Girl
