By the Whites of Her Eyes

I saw a woman the other day walking in a full burka, the thick black cloth covering everything but her heavily mascara-ed eyes. She was power-walking next to her husband (or brother), who was wearing shorts and a T-shirt.

Hanging around her neck was one bright spot, a smart phone jostling and flashing reflections of the ambient light.

So many ironies.
