...... in tribute to the events of September 11th, 2001 .....
There and gone
Slender twins by the water, now ghosts of empty air.
Lost but never fading
Burned images on my retinas:
ashes to ashes, down from the heavens dust upon dust upon dust upon dust
crashing, shifting, crumbling, falling clouds and confetti; souls and dreams
candles extinguished by powers unseen.
Darkness falls heavily
Obscuring all reason.
Search for answers
Emotion blinds sense:
no rest in your peace no peace in our rest
no sense in their action no action makes sense
hate supports hate ignorance breeds division brother kills brother
and the terror rolls on
Still your outrage, O vengeful masses
Lift as in song those purest dreams:
Ghandi, King, Lennon our masters of verse.
Sing, and sing again; Sing loud and sing strong
