we were cousins
in our underoos
emblazoned with cotton courage
superman, aqua-man
I changed
in the bathroom
marveled at my own transformation
I became a wonder of a woman
in my 6 year old
heroine underthings
justly we united
we saved them all
invincible 1970’s children
we saved ourselves
truth ensnarled bad guys
within the looping of my golden lasso
those fascists
those corrupt power hungry villains
who foolishly grew up
and abandoned childish dreaming
