Hijab Solidarity Day, Allentown, Pa., January 20, 2017

1.
Old and young, four abreast, with a banner
STAND 
TOGETHER.
Orange
letters
stand
against
hate.
We
stand
four abreast with a banner, young and old.

2.
We are marching in the rain side by side, many
heads —
Muslim,
non-Muslim —
covered.
Heads
scarfed.
Hooded,
yarmulked
heads.
We are many, walking side by side in the rain.

3.
At the rally, all eyes, a Muslim woman on her
American
flag
scarf:
I’m
American —
hijab
doesn’t
negate
American.
A Muslim woman, all eyes on her at the rally.
