Zorro as Poet

 

Zorro writes poems. Sonnets are his specialty. He likes the structure they
embody: their formal, traditional nature. His lucky number is 14. He claims
to have 14 lives. Says he’s already used 12. He says rhyme is a forgotten art,
and art a forgotten rhyme. He’s never cut his wrists. Never felt the need to
be isolated in a room crooning to sullen indie bands with a splashy color in
their name. Says emo isn’t his doing, and just because he’s clad in all black
and likes Plath, he’s not to blame.
