When Wonder Woman Decided to Try Dating

Wendy Babiak

So Norrin called, and after we got past

his ideas of temperance, and mine of boundaries

without which no relationship can last

he asked if I'd like dinner. I said, “Please”

and since for him disguise was not a choice

I wore the suit and left the dress at home.

Excited by his sexy tone of voice

I wondered what his skin, which looked like chrome

would feel like under lips and fingertips.

At the door I thought his face looked pained.

While flying on his board my right foot slipped.

He clasped me then, his hunger unrestrained.

Forgetting dinner, he took us to the moon.

Remembering, I still can hear him croon.
