Koranic Conversation - Poem by Alexandre Nodopaka

I. The Question

In a rush
she forgot to put it on
risking criticism
on Ali Baba Street.

Because
she does not wear
a scarf today
should she consider herself
a sinner.

II. The Answer

Now half-buried
in dirt
the sand in her mouth
tastes like blood.

Hidden under a hijab sac
her lungs do not release
a single cry
while they stone her.
