Duality

I am soft,

Fluid movements

Relaxed muscles

Eager to smile

Quick to laugh

Carefree and alive

I am hard.

Direct maneuvering

Clenched jaw

Ready to bite

Preparing to run

Surviving the streets

Men see femininity

As weakness

Men see vulnerability

As an opportunity

Men see openness

As an invitation

They use their gaze

They use their hands

They use their voice

To remind you

Of your place

in public spaces
