Requiem for Wonder Woman

Christine Ray – Only human, super some other day

Brave & Reckless

reached for basic black today
red, blue and gold hang untouched
in the closet
lasso of truth forlorn
in the corner
too heavy for these tired arms
outlines of a plane
just visible in the driveway
covered in fine layer of dust
the world feels
like it is moving on
without me
a blur of color, smells, sound
that overwhelmed senses
cannot process
I rest my head
against my fists
allow a moment of mourning
for shattered illusion
of invincibility
spine of steel
requiem for a wonder woman
forced to accept that
she is only human
after all
