2018 Day 21 (bonus) – What Narcissus Saw

He saw         She saw

His needs  reflected       Her needs ignored

Open flirtation       Friendly smile

Provocation            Empowerment

Implicit invitation       Polite avoidance

Assertiveness       Intimidation

Harmless hug                  Unwanted groping

Flattering compliment       Too personal remark

Clever chat-up                Humourless cliché

A coy maybe             A resounding no

Notes: I’d quite like to try this for two voices in performance. Also, it’s practically impossible to lay out the way I wanted it!
