Poem per week: Male Gaze by Rosa Stevens

Male Gaze

 

There are a million girls like us. 

We’re all just sluts anyway.

 

So please, continue.

Climb up my legs with your gaze.

Blow up my skirt with your tapping foot.

Mess my hair with your wet lips. 

 

Amuse yourself.

 

Scrutinize my body whilst you stew.

Imagine it as you bite your pen.

Wait for me till its legal.

Or don’t, it’s out of my control.

 

Tug the skirt. Smooth the blouse.

Button the coat. Cover yourself.

Shrink.

 

Boys will be boys.
