Leonard Gontarek: Two Poems on Flying

1. Hero
You ever notice, when I’m around, Superman is not around.
2.  Carnival
My parents went to get something to eat.
My grandmother watched us.
We wanted to go on the Ferris wheel.
We gave our helium balloons to our grandmother to hold.
She floated away.
When our parents returned, we told them what happened.
Did she say anything?
She said it was won-der-ful.
