Doing hip circles and combating sexism,
how did you start your Monday?
It began with the comment,
“I saw a woman building a wall today.”
As I awaited the Trump joke,
(“It’s a little further from the border than I expected.”)
something else came.
I flashed a look of bewilderment,
he ‘explained’ with,
“She Didn’t Have A Penis.”
and I wonder how defining a construction worker
then a woman is a punch-line.
Then I realized,
women are supposed to have penises!
It’s so obvious now!
I fake laughed it off,
I wasn’t sure if it was a safe place
to tell them I didn’t have one either…
