uncomfortable shift…

I’ve watched

the uncomfortable

squirming in their seats

their skins

when I mention


sexual assault


an even more uncomfortable shift


awkward silence

when that sexual assault

is of a child


It’s not like it comes up in conversation over lunch or anything

it’s usually pertaining to conversation about ME being me

,and why I am the way I am.


I don’t apologize

or explain myself

to the ignorant


..progress for me.

But if the conversation should shift

into some type of explanation to those that care

The uncomfortable shift,

is still felt and seen.


I’m not sure why that is.

But I don’t care

like I used too.
