False Judgement

There she sits
her beautiful eyes betrayed by
the frowning accusations of others
her headscarf a crime
the judgement made
identity assigned by the fetid mouths
of ignorance,
but who is she?
Any one of a dozen cultures
and none
of course,
the beauty of she
is that she is she and
unrelated to your barbed mouth.
