Cape Included

I am coveting
her red and purple cape
the fun parade of stars
and stripes
it has stripes!
and a matching hat!
with golden wings!
for flying
(or angelic inspiration?)
I want to be like her
“super awesome”
able to leap tall buildings
conquer the fear
the doubt
the worry

the general day-to-day

we should all come with capes!
