Chanting in the streets.

The majority of signs displayed positive messages, but there were a few that didn’t.

Latin at the march! De facto motto of the USA: “E pluribus unum,” one out of many.

“Girls just wanna have fun-damental rights.”

“Pussy grabs back!”

“Can’t build a wall with hands that small!”

“Make America kind again.”

“Fight like a girl!”

“My body, my choice!”

“This is what happens when you piss off nasty women.”

“There is no force more powerful than a woman determined.”

“Keep your laws off my body!”

“Women are people.”

A text message:

“Hey! It’s Friday! And it’s Inauguration Day! I will celebrate but guess you won’t. Have a great day! Love you……”

Today I feel:

s t r e s s e d

Scared

Ashamed&Annoyed&Argumentative

Shocked, in that I-knew-it-before-but-here-it-is-again way.

“alter in ambiguo est an sit comprensus”

I am just like this “other, in ambiguity as to whether it is caught”.

Caught by what? Nerves? Sleep-deprivation? The talons of some havoc-wreaking English teacher?

By my own breath.

Inauguration Day, 2017.
