With all the buzz about the movie Wonder Woman, it’s no wonder that I came across something I wrote in a journal several years ago. Part of a series of poems entitled wild women, I present…
wild women #3…ode to the super sHero
wear scars like badges
as they fight the hard fight…with love
defend and protect…with no restrictions
ignore the norm.
they dive into perpetually changing rivers
and surface with childlike wonder and glee.
bare breasted, no breasts
they shiver with shock sensuality
during uninhibited frolic.
dance, climb, drum, play with abandon
are ready for action, regardless,
mounting challenges (and their lovers)
with equal dexterity
sassy vixens not sex victims.
SNAP! CRACKLE! They SIZZLE!
age less with time
are ageless wonders
who are brave beyond the wild pink yonder.
faster than a whirling dervish
leap tall buildings in peep toe shoes
rock a jean jacket more skillfully than a cape
catch warm moonbeams with their more than capable bare hands.
a halo across their chests,
they soar like powerhouse queens
over risk free metropolis meadows sHeros telling Herstories
never in disguise.
wild women are strong
yet tender warriors.
they demand their rights
are calculatingly cleaver
using their affluence to influence.
investing in the present moment
they are never afraid of what will be what has been what is
don’t need to be told what to do.
and they do wear red.
