Lois Lane

she looks pregnant
have an abortion
or the baby
to get her figure
she’s unpleasantly sexy

This tanka is a found poem taken from a letter written circa 1938-1941 by an editor at DC Comics explaining why Siegel and Shuster shouldn’t get more money from the Superman books. It is a reminder of how far we’ve come in equality and how far we must still travel.
