Me Too…

Me Too…

That evening

This morning

Decades ago

Just now

Still fresh

 

At home

At School

At Work

In Sick

Stuck in traffic

Out partying

Out for a walk

On my own

In an empty parking lot

In a mall

In broad daylight

At the holiest of places

 

Leered

By least expected faces

In the cradle

On my death bed

On the first night

And the following nights

After fights

 

In my favourite pair of jeans

Covered

Draped head to toe

Uncovered By friends and foes

By every single one

Given an opportunity

 

To stalk

To stroke

To grope

To gape

If given time,

Rape

And break

And Make

Me feel

 

Unsafe

In every space I inhabit

So every moment I tread

I dread

It’s going to be…

Me Too
