I.

I was having a bad day. In the stairwell of my apartment building, an Uber-male with a broad smile and big swaggering thighs blocked my way.

“Come on, gorgeous,” he said. “Smile for me!”

Not for you.

“How dare you?” I said. “My father just died.”

The look on his face, like his erection had suffered a stroke—this made me smile.

So I said to him,  “Why the sad face? Smile for me!”

Imagine that, he couldn’t get it up.

II.

I was biking not too fast. It was a cool morning, drizzling a bit.  I love this weather.

On the corner where I was about to make a left, a cop stood leaning against the door of his cruiser.

He called to me, “Be careful now!” As I turned the corner, I got a good look at his baby face. He wore a mask of paternal concern.

I called back in a husky voice, “Don’t worry. I’ve got a dick!”

The daddy face dropped and I pedaled away fast.

III.

A VISION

It is evening and men just off from work crowd the street. They stand on the sidewalk in huddles, bullshitting: “And I told that bitch…”

My shoulders tense as I walk past. A moment later I hear the wolf whistle, and then, (snicker). I look up and see faces hardened into leers, men who can’t distinguish sex from violence.

I don’t swing my ass with gratitude, a beggar. And I don’t lower my eyes and walk away like a slave. No. I turn on my heel, walk right up to the whistler, then rapidfire—One- Two- Three!—I whack his face with a stainless steel dildo. I pull this dildo from my inner jacket pocket, the same location where gentlemen conceal handguns. My pocket is large. My dildo is ridged for pleasure. It hits like a fist.

The best relationships are founded on an ethic of reciprocity. So I say, an eye for an eye, a dick for a dick. A penis, to be sure, is not the ultimate weapon. A penis by itself is not power. A penis is a thing. As is a dildo. You and I are free to wield these things at our discretion. Let us pretend, then, that we are adversarial squires from a long-ago era. You slap me with your dick. I slap you with mine. So we shall duel, sir! Meet you on the shooting field at the cock’s first crow.

Oh I’ve enjoyed it all so much! Both of you! So different, but symmetry still!

An eye for an eye, a dick for a dick.
