the best villain
i have been told
that i am too much this
or not enough that my entire life,

but i finally feel
comfortable in my bones;

sat down with my dark side
and we’ve talked
i realize now she’s not evil
or vile or grotesque—

but we’ve decided if we must be
a villain in a world where the heroes
are the ones that hurt people
then we’re going to be the best villain
you ever did see,

and we’re going to smash the teeth
of every nightmare so that others can be
free to dream;

we don’t like the competition of other
monsters—

you wanted to see my teeth,
look at these fangs;
they glitter prettier than moonlight.
