NaPoWriMo 2018 – #9 Foreign Bodies

Manspreading_in_Korea_Busan_Metro

Foreign Bodies

Look at them

with their manspreads

their open plan sexual organs

their overdeveloped egos

their bass-boom voices

 

Just bloody look at them

with their alpha-male postures

their over-muscled buttocks

taking up three seats

their bad-designer stubble

their hangdog hangover eyes

 

Just fucking look at them

ogling the waitresses

complaining about the service

planning their moves

their cigarette smoke airs

poisoning the atmosphere

  1. This would go over so well at Friendly Street – I can just about hear you reading it …. Brilliant picture too – your own? or a purchase?

    • Thanks Valerie. The image is a “wiki commons”/ free to reuse one I found just using Google Image search. I turned it into a negative and played with the contrast a bit

Please tell me what you think?
