The women see through a different lens – Afghanistan
Yeats was right.
"The blood-dimmed tide is loosed."
On the ground
the debris of lives destroyed.
The deafening report of officials
drowns out simple truths.
The artist imagines differently.
"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the land."
The imperative is clear.
The women see through a different lens.
