Letter to My Mother

i.

twenty seven

i return

to the house

at the corner I grew up in

weeds too high to mow

down next to the papaya tree waits

abbu’s gray toyota pickup

he’s dead for eight

years i wanted to step

through the front door

right foot first always you taught me

the way of the Prophet.

Read the rest of the poem at the International Museum of Women’s exhibit Muslima.
