The hilal

crescent Earth —
the Ayatollah
furrows her brow

Papal audience —
sunlight glints from
her steel smile
"It will be women who will change Islam and bring it into the 21st century, because we have nothing to lose."
"Such a sighting [of the lunar crescent] had to be made by one or more trustworthy men testifying before a committee of Muslim leaders."
