Write about that day in 2001. 9-11. What were your thoughts?


Healing America:
9/11 Poem

Time stitches
the jagged edges of terror
into a new scare.

9/11 One Year Later

The memory
is an endlessly looping videocassette
replaying death in slow motion.

The paralyzed mind watches,
American Airlines Flight 11
         penetrates steel, glass, and concrete;
watches United Air Lines Flight 175
         vaporize bodies, desks, and computers;
watches the illusion of safety
         crumble into dust;
watches the illusion of control
         buried beneath its own weight.

The trembling soul screams
when America Flight 77
         punctures the impregnable fortress of military security;
screams when United Flight 93
         crashes into the ground;
screams when the flesh is burned
         from its concept of God;
screams when hope falls
         in ashes across the country.

The memory is still fresh
and life hasn't returned
to business as usual.

Poet's Note:


smoke
and dust
towers fell
consumed by hate
our stomachs knotted
our terror stricken eyes
watched the video replays
our minds numb in shock waiting
we prayed for those who did not survive
