Faceless

Burqa-clad women receive aid distributed by the Ummah Islamic charity in Kandahar, Afghanistan

Like a pattern of piled rocks,

they sit in the Afghani sun

distributed parcels of aid

sit as passive as they

 

Faceless women

sit regimentally

Identity erased,

like pebbles in a creek bed,

uniform, indistinguishable
