9/11/again

and: explosions, flames, smoke

 

sirens, moans, blood & tears

all buried in dust

infamy

 

or: strutting the night

 

the bowlegged wolverine

sniffs the air, disappears

and is gone

 

for: who holds the rights?

 

who knows the wrongs?

how many dead?

questions, years

 

so: table for two

 

honestly, I’m a coward

how about you?

are you like me?

 

rather: relieved not to be

 

in the schools today

watching how we “commemorate”

this solemn “remembrance”

 

if: the demolition of empire

 

fans nationalist, fear-based fires

grooming children to believe

their “ultimate service” to US

 

yet: this love of country

 

(maybe) involves killing

and/or dying for . . . it?

more sawed-off bullshit

 

but: still what? how? why?

 

i smile, will the lesson

give the benefit of doubt

tell tales of human pain, neither

 

nor: ignore dark beauty

 

our black cat staring

into the night sky, i see

three yellow moons
