Postcard from Dubai

Western feminist, American liberal
The weekend of Trump’s Inauguration

Violent stomach bug
and angry eyebrows

Wandering the streets of Dubai in her pajamas
Desperately seeking electrolytes and maternal warmth
A man in grey stops to leer, walks up to her

“Really? Right now?” Before she can bark,
“Stop looking at me!” She throws up
all over her shoes
Articulating her point better than words ever could

Stories of travels, of tribulations, and of learning to tell the difference.
