I was totally going to write poems for each hero in Overwatch, rotating through each class a hero at a time. Started with Mei (Damage), then followed up with D.Va (Tank). Today should have gone to a Support hero, but I’ve been sitting on this Tracer poem an extra week because I just had to drop the D.Va one after that fun animated short. So, I’m breaking my own schedule only three entries in. Oops.
Read this and more in Cable-Knit Sweater, an on-going poetry collection on Wattpad.

The blinkin’, dodgin’,
wicked little pixie from London,
heart bigger on the inside,
life’s a perpetual state of deja vu,
strike it, reverse it,
she’s goin’ forward to go back,
cuz the world needs more heroes,
and this girl’s outta time.
