Overcome

The Palestinian woman

       in her black

     hijab walks alone.

 Her mind and heart

       longing for her Jewish

  lover and consort.

       Soon

       she’ll walk beside him

       in the open air,

hijab discarded,

   dreams unfolding.

  But her family suspects

    and his government

   disapproves.

    For the blood

       runs free and long in

       years past.

    Their love is strong, but

will it survive the wars

of God and Allah?
