Editor’s Note: For six years running, contributing author Zach Adler has spent the month of April putting out a poem a day. By turns earnest and wry, these poems are based on prompts (and often forms) chosen at random using a deck of cards. The prompts range from “The Grandfather Paradox” to “Emotional Adultery” to “White Person Dreadlocks”. This year we decided to turn all his entertainment-related National Poetry Month entries into a series of our own.

She is an easy target
“She-Hulk XXX”
Drunken porn convention antics
Jumping in a fish tank
For some reason

But can you
Think of a better person
To play She-Hulk?
And would you
If invited not attend
A porn convention?

You wouldn’t be able to
Help yourself and even if you said
You were going for the novelty alone
And at all times you made sure
To keep at least one sweaty palm against
The back wall you couldn’t
Say you wouldn’t
Have just one drink
Just to loosen up
And then just to loosen up
One more
