    Do you try to kill everyone?
                        Or
    Only the ones you have to?

So opens the second collaborative collection of Super Poems, with Two Questions for Every Player. This unassuming little volume assails our existential questions, illuminated by the blue screen, in the company of our old favorite characters who limp along beside us, as bewildered by the world as we are.

    
    Foreign Tongue
 
    The castle speaks lizard. 
    Lost princesses speak castle.
    Mario speaks English 
    in Mushroom Kingdom 
    and in America.

    In a castle, if you don’t know
    what to say, say please.

    Only the lizard knows 
    when the princess asks what 
    holds her to this fiery 
    bridge, where language is 
    liminal, she really says

    This is America. Live with it. 
    What castle isn’t on fire?
