"   she asked me
how far I am
in the Quran and
I tell her I admire
her level of imaan
she laughs
and belittles herself
and says
‘you’ve been wearing
the hijab for six years,
I’m the one who should
admire you’
I glance at the Quran
that’s warmly held in
her hands
and I remember how
I forgot how to read it and
how I had forgotten the words
when the sheikh was reciting
Surah Al-Fatiha this Jummah
I look at her and
I remember the nights
where my tears would put
me to sleep thinking of
the sins I had committed that day
I remember wiping the dust out
of my Quran and forcing myself
to remember how to read it
I remember being angry with
myself for letting it get to this point
I smile at her and I tell her
that I have chosen to start over and
that she and I are no different   "

New York streets are faded to you these days. You still carry Tokyo in your heart, all winding, narrow streets and glowering neon street signs, flickering on and off with your breathing. You sit in half-empty bath tubs watching hot water run down your legs, thinking of you and your brother cycling home down tree-lined paths, cutting through puddles and rotten leaves until you were wet around the ankles.

I really felt like this was right out of an anime movie. Animation is so on point.
