To the Man Who Shouted “What does your pussy taste like?!” as I Ran By

By Courtney LeBlanc

It tastes briny,
like the ocean.
It surges, waves pounding
the surf, punishing
the sand simply for always
being there, for always
being present, for never
leaving well enough alone.

I keep running,
ready to drown him
in a sea of my pounding
feet.
