Hello, I’m Zahra. I’m gonna get right down to my future because my right now sucks. There is nothing more I want from this world than the world itself. I yearn to travel and meet the heroes of everyday life. I enjoy art and history with a splash of poems. I am over penta-lingual yet still not satisfied with my limited vocabulary. Last but not least, Arabs and Afghans fascinate me.

"He says: I’m Muslim.
As he brings the double shot of rum to his lips.
I imagine the way it burns as it slides down his throat.
He winces, then smashes the glass against table.
Everyone turns and cheers,
then they go back to their conversations.
He says it again — I swear.
I say: I know.
He looks at me with sad eyes.
Wallahi - he says,
still trying to convince me.
I say: I know.
I watch his eyes turn to glass as he downs another.
I swear I am Muslim - he slurs
I say: I know.
No— he says— you’re judging me, look
and he holds his hands over his ears and he begins to recite.
And I put my hand over his as people begin to stare.
And I say: I know.
And he begins to cry, and his tears look ancient, and his face contorts, and his mouth is open but there is no sound, and his body shudders.
And he tries again and again, never getting past Bismillah.
He keeps on saying “No you don’t understand I am Muslim, I am Muslim, I am Muslim, I am Muslim”
I know, I say.
And he holds the bottle to his mouth and he almost swallows it whole, and he says “marry me Aasiyah, I am a good man, my father is a hafiz of Quran,
it is just this Dunya, it is this world that has killed me”
I know, I say
I know."

There are days
where I wake up
and I can no longer
remember who you are.

I think I dreamed you
into existence.

I need feminism because the tens of thousands of American soldiers who died in combat during modern wars could have contributed to the conception of countless awesome women who otherwise were never born. (◡‿◡✿)
