Stoning in Abadan

 

By Ramtin
April 23, 2003
The Iranian

two women
on their knees
bodies swaying
side to side
covered in black veils
head to toe
dust rises
stones crack ribs
men form a circle
throw until arms are numb
god's punishment
for infidel women
i watch
from a leather couch
as the women stop moving
rocks still falling
on their mangled frames
a little boy
spits at the bodies
as the crowd screams
god is great
god is great
