Reflections on the #MeToo movement.
NO, to being touched or stroked or pinched or whipped,
NO, to winking eyes or pouting lips,
NO, to whistles, “Oi”s, or walks beside,
NO, twisting small to squeeze aside,
NO, I’m not my tits, my legs, my arse,
NO, “1-10”, a “Play or Pass”,
NO, to “Can I sleep on your couch tonight?”
NO, that’s not what you mean.
NO, to being polite,
NO, to being too nice, too naive to protest.
NO might have not passed my lips,
NO, but neither had YES.
NO, to not speaking out,
NO, it’s not just a few,
NO more, it stops now.
