A catcall has a special way of turning your day(month) around.
A loud shout across a busy street has the unique ability to take a bad day
and turn the rest of the week sour.
As I rush across the street, thinking of a thousand witty retorts, they are three or four blocks gone.
Three or four blocks too small to say anything.
Because it was my five foot tall self against the four of them-
and they are men.
And for three or four days(weeks) I'll agonize
over the fact that I'll never be taken seriously
if I am wearing a skirt.(As a woman)
