Walking home from the

grocery store with

two heavy bags, one in each

arm to balance the weight.

A man

blocking the sidewalk

whisky on his breath and blurry eyes

“What have you got there?”

I want to say, what do you think I have in these grocery bags asshole

but I keep my head down and

keep walking

“So you’re not going to talk to me?”

This time, out loud, “NO.”

I want to walk home from the grocery store

without someone trying to

talk to me

hit on me

harass me.

Not all men harass, but

all women

have been harassed.


Need to talk?
