Tuesday, and after: 2003
9/23 do you ever picture a woman opening a coat to reveal a bomb?

Yes, overly simplified, romanticized gender view
when I wrote it.
And now
in Palestine, Iraq, Turkey, Morocco
women and girls, with bombs,
on foot, in cars.
Western imperialism
working hard
to bring gender equality
to the Middle East.2011
