WONDER WOMAN BOP



One of the sad facts of life is that
no matter how many times you do it,
no matter how fast you spin around
in dizzy arabesque like an ice skater
until you fall over or puke
there won’t be a flash of red light and sparks.

You will never turn into Wonder Woman.

Lynda Carter still keeps her hand in acting,
turning up in things occasionally but no
Amazonian bustier for her now nor you ever,
no gold truth whip or bullet-defecting bracelets
nor your own house, nor decent job either.
Lynda Carter still looks great though,
amazing, really, at her age, but no, with all the
spinning around like a top in the world,

none of us will ever turn into Wonder Woman.

Lynda Carter looks like she could easily
still slip into the costume, unlike the little boy,
six or seven, that did a lot of spinning around
wanting to be someone else, someone fabulous.
Lynda Carter will always be my Diana Prince
and Themyscrian princess, but no amount of twirl


will ever turn any of us into Wonder Woman
