1.3 Miles, 27 minutes says my Google Maps
Handy informationfrom a more commonly used app
Didn't need to use iton this particular eventful nightTravelling from Home to dinner I was apparently quite the sight
Off to meet friends that I've seen little of since school.Know little of my Girly side and I'm still new to'Best Practice' or 'Rules'
Check the mirrormy choice of ClothesFemme's under Pressure,'Passable' as can be the way I chose
Common 'Trans' hang up, ‘Pass in the Gender Opposite’ Learned to deal with this swiftly, ditching it as a requisite

Apply lighter foundation,last attempt a bit dark,I consider my routes,should I walk through the Park?
It's only a cut-through,race course corner,Mid-length dress I choose,thick leggings, they're warmer
A Neutral colour,Listing said Beige,The 1/2 hour aheadwould feel like an age
Blissfully unaware of this..as I level my hem
Two materials with a conflictWhich waged between them
It was quite serious too,the signs soon became clear,As Dress 'Ran' from leggingsto almost disappear
On the Dance Floor or Social Media looks were Complimented…"It Rocks!!”1/4 mile into walkit barely covered…"Lunch Box"
I carried a well tucked sandwichcannot deny
Dress took advantagepresenting maximum thigh
Getting Ready in Room,had registered no concernHeartbeat much lowerbefore such lessons were learned
A simple choice"Which Shoes to Wear?"Beige Platform Boots,Tested in Trafalgar Square
And these Girly attributesto test my composeTwo areas of torsodrew attention as they 'rose'
Dress offered cover,A Pretty Cleavage NetBlack bra to match attire, they're lifted and set
Just hair left now,I need to leave soonBrush and a FlickFeet moving to Tune
Quick Spray to keep Volume,"You've got this, be Proud'Out Front Door to face,all it did shroud
My Platforms struck Pavement,As a Moped zoomed past“If rider doesn’t return neck fast,it'll end up in Cast”
At the top of the hillholding the foundations of my homeThe numbnuts stoppedto answer his phone
Turned head againto take a longer glanceNo break in my stride signalled…'No Chance!"
The Sun was fallingbut it was a new level of exposureFull Daylight, Short Dresschallenging composure
Should have I of turned back then?Maybe, I'm a girl with No Class…Certainly felt like itwith my Dress up my Arse!
Sami consciously reachedto wriggle dress downStu watched Sami uncomfortablyfrom inside with a frown
"Well it's never bothered you beforewhen worn by others!?""Of course not, they look good!"...as I imagined what they cover!!
At the main road thenneeding to crossStu wanted to sort wardrobe,but Sami was Boss!
Head again raisedfalse confidence, so not too far
Enough to not appear victimor get hit by a car
Had Just passed an alternative routeThinking, “Would I be better tracking back?”Ahead of me gathered in Park Was a rather lively looking Pack!
Contemplation Reasoned"they've know where to go"Boat Race mooring in Barnetas Neck started to bow
Keeping Distance on Wide walkway,increasing volume of vocal cordsChecked my Ego! "Nothing to do with you!"
language hides clues in foreign words
Then Calling Sounds and Whistlesit had just come back to me…I Make a quick stretch back to street lifeand relative normality
Respite from attention was desperatebarely 10 minutes inDisapproving looks, accepting smiles commonthis barrage I wasn't expecting
Stepped aside for Mother and Child,who was clearly new to walkingNecessities of life, courteous reactionsdecisions require no talking
She had one hand on a buggy,A trike too belonging to a small boyPreviously such un-threatening situationsI would still have behaved all coy
Sorry! Said the lady, assume it's for getting in my wayI laugh to myself at these commonmisplaced mannersDon't be silly I smile and Say
A few minutes of calm welcomeas I review the previous 10I round the corner by the barracksit was that moment when
Small Car at the LightsPassenger through window hoping to converseFew Lude Compliments, My lack of reply…means now it's turning perverse
Through Corner of Eye, I count young menfull car, numbering 4Then it's 'You working tonight ha haha'my ignorance made me a whore
It wasn't the look I was going forI've claimed last laugh in this JokeAs one of them finally realised... "Fuck sake I think it's a Bloke!"
I raised my hand in 'Peace SignTo be safe I Quicken my Paces…Just wish I could have captured the looksEmbarrassed shock carved into Faces
Then a second calm as the heart rate settleda little longer this timeIn head I considered all the new materialand this as prospective rhyme
Talking of Material, there is one piece always on side
And Front, And back, “Is it even below coat?” My dress persistently rides
Decision to be made for my route nowThe Visibility of 'Safe Routes' now clearIf honest at this point just one thing on mind“shortest distance to there from here”
Grown up in town, know most areasElectrician for 25 years, that's life!Comfort of vehicles now appreciated moreas I walked the paths with such strife
I forgot that again as I cut through some housesand a Dog Walker passed me by
A very attractive smiling Girl as it goesher compliment lifted me high..
"WOW, What a great pair of legs girl just be careful the Tan doesn't run!""They're leggings and thermal" my reply,
she passed where I stood and I'd spun..
Smile cheered face as confidence whirredspinning the poetic cogPassed so fast the compliment I managed
aimed at the husky, “Cool Dog!”
Extra Bounce lifted mebut this new step style was briefBack out onto a Main Streetwith all the associated grief
The Welli Rd was this walks Home stretchstrides covered as much slab as I canThoughts consumed by dangerous possibilitieswhen 'Admirers' realise I'm Man...
At the end of this stretch was the Imran BaltiGuess you could say that was my goalI reached the Door of Beer Guerilla and divert to appease my Soul
Packed as I've ever seentried to remain elegantas I followed my Hips to the Bar
“Emergency Third Please”My whole being was shaking“ABV high, I'm not driving my car”
Matt places my Beer on the counter by TillI passed my card for NFC
But with a look like his Chimpish Emblem,
Matt Smiles and says "On Me!"
4 minutes to Spare as I escaped to this safe zoneBeer bringing a moment of CalmJust 30 seconds to destination nowI would surely come to no harm?..
True, I wasn't hurt approaching or passingthe group at the restaurant door
Stood in the Entrancetalking to someone I know
Guys banging on window ‘Eyes bored’
The birthday group was upstairsSo I climbed to enter a new roomTwo very lively Hen GroupsHoping...“It's safer than Stag Party with Groom?”
Enjoyed the Meal, Nice to see Old friends Then we grab a drink down the roadI walk to a club before diverting…And head to my mates abode
A few hours passed, time to head homethe time we shared was nice,Then a Guy by the Taxi Rankand Another by shopsYes I was actually followed in the dark Twice
So I share this Rhyme with A whole new insightto the experience of a girl's single nightI'm not impressed and I'm telling you nowthat something with society ain't right!!!
