bonus post, collective #4- strangers eyes

east-end city was friendliest when I wore a hijab.
how warm, sisterhood!
returned greeting nods, held gazes.
instant minority of cloth.

(unconsciously composing groups)

back with hair bare, tribes changed.
sidewalk coma returned; I'm indistinct from brick, cement;
blind micro-aggressions ;
