Hear Me Too

I want to stand atop Sapitwa
Maybe there you will hear me
When I tell you of the time I was 7
And my cousin was 22
When he said shush
No one will believe you
We’re just playing a game after all

And maybe this time
You will hear me
When I ask you
In college
To unlock the door
I’ve had too much to drink
So I’d like to leave

Will you hear me too?
When I say my boss makes me uncomfortable
The way he stares at my thighs
When we’re alone in his office
When I tell you of the time
He grabbed me
Stood too close to my face
asked if I wanted a ride home

I want to stand atop Sapitwa
maybe there
You will hear me
When I ask you to protect the women.
