Keep the masses
occupied –

celebrity
focused.

Feed them
must see
must hear
must play
must have
content.

Imply jobs
are supposed
to suck.

Escape!
Consume!

Normalize
EXCESS,
call it
life’s GOAL.

Believe it
uncool
unpatriotic
to think
otherwise.

nine was was

September 9, 2007

It seemed a time of respect.

Skies were skies,

no chalky lines
of jet smoke –

only bird and cloud and flag.

Terrorism
was not yet entertainment.

Booty and bullets
disappeared from the screen.

Reflection and restraint
seemed a collective value.

Never to return,

we lived briefly
in the eye of a blood storm

I heard “oral sex”

I heard “oral sex”
ten thousand times more
than “terrorism”.

I saw her face
ten thousand times more
than bin Laden’s.

If only it had been otherwise…
