Desert candle in a tented space
Throwing softer shadows on a covered face.
Sister, silent to the likes of me
Pay my respects to her propriety.

Is this some crazy woman here,
Dancing behind her thin black veil?
Am I misreading those mysterious eyes?
Duet impossible to harmonize.

I'm not inviting any stiff reaction.
I'm not one for naming holy names
And I won't peek behind those dangerous veils
Though you might hate me just the same.
