1. On Thursday I had too much to drink
    And a man old enough to be my father, who had had even more, tried to get my attention in a pub 
    But my friend put his arm around me, clenched his jaw and stared him down until he slunk away
    Of course you never touch what belongs to another man
    But when I was walking home on my own a man and his friends yelled things at me that made me cry
    When I walked by silently, he grabbed my arm and told me to listen when men complimented me
    A cab driver pulled up and they disappeared
    The driver scolded me about being out by myself at night, that I was lucky nothing worse had happened, that thank god he was there 
    And I remembered the time, in another taxi, where the doors were locked and I was told that I wouldn’t have to pay my fare as long as I was a good girl

    When I woke up in the morning, with fingerprints bruised on my forearm, I wondered why I still apologised for being out alone.

  7. Dear Internet:

    Thinking of reading Fifty Shades of Grey? DON’T!

    Read All That I Am by Anna Funder instead. It’s great and it won’t make you dumber like the aforementioned monstrosity. In fact, it will probably make you smarter, give you shinier hair and improve your depth perception. Hell, it might even get you laid. 

    Literature: get on it. 


  8. A short poem about the contents of my fridge.

    Half a bottle of vodka

    One jar of red curry paste

    Milk (expired 26/6/2012)

    Half a comically tiny pumpkin

    Achievement unlocked: balanced diet
