collective # 40 - the would-be night-taken

Curious how, over the years, women
who fear they cannot walk safely alone

have selected me as their Substitute Man
to walk them to their cars, bus or home.

I'm flattered to play the part
of strong, male lead role.

and less delighted am I on one night's 11 pm ride alone...

to be catcalled, whistled at, lady-lady, lady called out by a group of 4 Arabic young men.

and have another male remark from the dark on how brave it is for a girl to ride alone.

and from a 3rd male group, a man seated on the grassy hill jump out in front of my bike and say yaaahh, and laugh to himself at how funny it was.
