count

how many catcalls
and whistles
and konichiwa’s
will it take

before i snap

sass and fury
and pretending
not to hear

nothing works
nothing makes me
feel better
nothing makes
the anger
go away

how much can
a body hold
before it breaks

and will it crumble
quietly into itself

or will explode
filling everyone
around it
with shrapnel

how much more
how much longer
until it stops?
