It’s nighttime.

Are you sleeping?
My mind’s wandering.

Nothing seems right.
Over and over again I’m,

Again I sleep.

Taking the 6 train
Early morning
Reading the paper
Raindrops falling
Over and over again.
Ready to start the day, I was ready.
Inhuman, the front page said.
Staring. Crying. They’re watching.
Taking a look in the mirror, frowning.

As a young Muslim woman living in such intense times, I fear what the actions of others may mean for me and the ones I love. So I write. I bleed on paper.
