fear enslaves us

each place –
its own box
of terror.

You always believe
ends justify means…

I heard oral sex
ten thousand times
more
than terrorism.

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

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
