I have been drawn to daggers ever since I walked through a store in Downtown Disney, before it was Disney Springs, back in the 1990s. I own none, but I keep looking to find the perfect one some day. Until then, my Wonder Woman sword letter opener will have to do.
The cold steel hilt fits perfectly in her hand.
Its curved cross-guard forms
gracefully around her grip
as if it were made specifically for her.
The hilt holds a moonstone on the pommel,
surrounded by rubies and aquamarines.
The etchings in the grip gleem against grey steel,
swirls upon swirls, a thing of beauty, with
symbols she does not understand.
She is drawn to it all the same.
