natural selection

She was a round faced girl
say 14 or so
had walked straight into the road
the driver, the almost killer, had beeped her
& now she was involved in telling him
to fuck off
this was girl power
no sorry, no oops, my bad
her fury was of the ‘how dare he tell me how to behave’
it was all there in her righteous indignation
full flow of fuck off & die
the driver began to wind down his window
& instead
wound his neck in
& there it was
the modern stalemate
how to tell an entitled
‘sisters are doing it for themselves’
young woman
that what they do is dangerous?
Patience
my friend
I thought
this
is exactly
what
Natural selection
is for
