Totally optional prompts: Persona poem

Superman for a day

I soared like a bottle rocket
and snapped gravity like a rusty anchor.
I skimmed seas in single breaths
and slept with the swallows.
I drank tears from the sky
and chased sunsets with the geese.
I rode currents with the pigeons
and split them like river rocks.
I backstroked along the heavens
and caught sparks with the shooting stars.
Then I landed with the seagulls,
tracing trails in the soft sand.
That was fun.
