A Love Poem for Shelley by Hulk by Greg Santos


Your brown hair ripples
like Captain Marvell cape
in spring breeze.

Hulk’s heart
for you more thunderously
mighty Thor hammer.

Your pale skin glistens
like milky white Space Ghost
costume beneath stars.

Hulk waits in moonlight for you
so we may smash side by side
in search of mythical
green songbird called love.

Simply one of our favorite songs of the decade and it seemed like the perfect time to share it. Check out more from Jens Lekman.
