Zaynab Tawil ’17 Recites a Poem | Bates College


What is a drowning woman? How does she smile? Are her eyes closed? Is her clothing open? Does it wave back with the energy and stamina of a woman? Where are the women? Look for the bulls Do not guard her Where is her shield? Why is her soft back open? Where is her curtain? Douse her hair
do not let the smoke rise do not let her light that torch kill her… nine times if you must unfree Lazarus
