“Picture This” or “Another Day” or “What We Expect”

Early March morning

Woman walks down seldom travelled road


Stockings under skirt




Hair in messy bun to be released upon work arrival.

Woman darts eyes across street

Noticing man approaching at intersection

Wraps coat tight as if a wool forcefield

Man crosses street

Actively stops self from looking

Does best to seem “non-threatening”

Man continues to walk

Expects kudos.

Woman continues to walk

Expecting the worst.
