EMERGING FEMINISMS, You Did. - The Feminist Wire

EMERGING FEMINISMS, You Did.

By Eunice Park

 

You didn’t speak – but you did stare
Smile right at me and bare
A rock tumbling back and forth
South & north
A disjointed compass directing you
To a heavy moan & laugh too

You didn’t touch – but you did speak
Ruin memories of a street I no longer seek
I was going out to eat
But you were going out to keep
A palate of breasts & ass
Only words, but enough to devour as I past

You didn’t penetrate – but you did touch
But you still loved me baby
Even when I screamed to save me
The law had an expiration date
For my Prince Charming transformed to Hate
I knew I was too late
When I was asked, “Why did you wait?”

You did stare.
              You did speak.
                            You did touch.

And when you knew no one cared to see –
You did penetrate me.

Laughing when investigations shrieked to a halt
My testimony now a grain of salt
You told the fashion police what I was wearing
What tempting fruit I was baring

You did stare.
              You did speak.
                            You did touch.

And when you knew no one cared to see –

You did penetrate
me.
