To the Muslim Woman Standing on the Edge of the Persian Sea


Sometimes I wish I were a Muslim woman

Hiding in plain sight

 A mask to cover me, keep me, and smother me

And guide me toward what I know is right

Like the safety of a lover's arms, you will cover my shame
 

Bless me, nourish me, teach me, and  raise me, release me from all my shame.
