Consent Matters

Consent Matters
Form: Free Verse
Subject: Forgetting
Object: Stiletto heels

I wear my skirts short but I’m no airhead
and life ain’t easy on these downtown streets
with your predatory eyes watching me walk
following me round a grocery store
so you can pinch my ass
like I am not human
but buddy I can punch like one
and I can kick you to the ground
if I need to
so don’t you forget mister
as my stiletto heel pierces your skin
this girl is no bimbo
and you ain’t touching without consent
