Day 112, 30 day poem challenge day 22

Day 22: do something physical.  Use whatever you did as a metaphor

On the demise of the Michigan women’s music festival 

Riding the T is public space
There may be a need for some
For women only trains, 
To be free from men’s tiring gazes
There may be a need 
For black only trains
To be free of white police harassment
But 
If your public space 
Requires you to police who belongs 
On the train 
You are part of the problem.
