9/11

country as flag
Remembering September 11, 2011First
I saw the smoke
on TV.

Then
I sat in my workplace
transfixed into new kind of
war

again.

...and then another plane came
exploding into the second tower

...and bodies rained
upon all the rest of that day.


Iraq has cost 1500 young soldiers
lives.

...and it shall go on.

On 9/11
over 3000 innocents
died.

Carry on!

Just carry on!
