On street harassment: Asking for it

Most days I am a bitch. Most days I try to be a sharp woman, razor, bird ready to flip. Most days I walk down the street with my bitch face very active. Keep away! I want to shout. My pussy secretes poison! My nipples shoot fire! Touch me and your fingers will burn off!
