i see the boy   rashida khoury


your clothes
your walk
the way
you talk
your purse
your wallet
do you drag?
or haul it
your face
made up
a boy or girl
the pronouns used
a gender blur
your hair, your eyes
your gesturing hands
i see the girl
inside your glance
your kickass boots
your muscled arms
i see the boy
inside your charms.
