That Look Men Have

All men have that look in their eyes
after a few too many drinks  
the one that says they could take you  
if they wanted to
 
The same look that would have had me  
trading my sexuality for self-loathing  
when I was still a silly little drunk
flirting with submission and meaningless ideology
 
A look that still leaves me stunned  
in that pregnant moment, I’m potential road kill  
caught up in the bright lights and danger
terrified and cowering at the drunken mercy…
 
Of those creatures I call men
