Over a picture with my hair
the first thing a friend
says to me in years,
in a small message on
Facebook, at the bottom of my screen—
"I love you
and I'm worried.  Don't forget
that hijab is your crown."
She does not see my hijab at all
and I don't know how to tell her
crowns grow heavy—
and hearts can bear the weight
of modesty.

Aiya Sakr was born in the United States but grew up in Amman, Jordan, with Palestinian, Egyptian, and Jordanian heritage.  She has a Master's degree in Literature and Writing from Utah State University.  Currently, she resides in Amman with her husband and their blind cat, Shams.  She teaches English literature.
