Heart gives a signal (some She-Ra doll poems)

All text here comes with very little adjustment from the official product descriptions of Mattel’s “She-Ra: Princess of Power” fashion-toy series, from 1984-1987 (cataloged on this excellent website).

Little Does He Know

that my beautiful blue scarf
is really
a life-saving


let the weather do its worst
I don’t care
this soft furry skirt will protect me from the cold
and I can turn it inside out
to protect me
another way
as a suit of armor

The Map

guess what?
I have a secret map, a map

of a world below the sea
that leads to buried treasure.

if you promise not to tell a soul
I’ll show you where the map is hidden.

see? right here

behind the blue fish shield
that matches my beautiful blue gown.

now come with me in search of the secrets of the sea.

This Dress

don’t you love surprises?
I do

that’s why I love this dress
underneath these layers of veils
underneath the shimmering trim
is a special secret sword.


I love strolling in my garden in this dress
the pretty posies on my shoulder
pull out to push trouble away

Lilac and glitter
Heart gives a signal

My sparkly hat becomes a light-blinding shield.
The pretty parasol is really a cover for my sword.



  1. Putting in enjambment
    and taking away exclamation
    marks makes princess words
    into Williams words
