Easy like Monday Mornings

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.”

More bewilderment.

He’s laughing,

and I wonder how defining a construction worker

then a woman is a punch-line.

I wait.

I think.

I wonder.

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…
