LUCKY STAR


Sigourney Weaver
as Ellen Ripley
in the 1979 movie Alien
taking off her space trucker clothes
unbuttoning
her shirt
stepping out of
her space trucker boiler suit
until she is only wearing
a thin cotton singlet
(white,
like robot blood)
and thin cotton underwear
(white,
like infinity stars)
perilously low-slung
showing a tasteful quantity
of bush
thanks to careful
airbrushing in post
and I,
seventeen,
vowed to be
an even bigger feminist than before.
