9/11

Tuesday, yes, it was
a normal day–
And then, WHAM!

What is that? What’s going on?
Should I be afraid?
Should I drive to work?
It was clear across the country
But it felt next door.

By the time school started
The towers fell.

And then the rest
happened–Shanksville,
Pentagon, air traffic
shutdown, unbelievable footage
unbelievable
The country mourns
The country mourns
The county mourns
It’s innocence.

And then they rose,
Changed
by both the horror
and the miracles

A new dawn
comes
none too soon.

"O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
