I Gathered My Name | A Poem by JD DeHart

Like patchwork, I gathered
my name from
the corners of the earth

I found my secret superhero
identity wrapped up
in a hundred comic books
someone’s grandmother threw
away

I learned who I was from
history and movies and art
and watching my genes
walk around in other people

I practiced my voice until
I liked the sound of it.
