9/12 Looms

To the Editor: The following poem is a reflection on 9/11.How much can a reporter tell you?How much can a broadcast say?Can they give an answer?Can they repair your heart?Can you hear screams turned silent?Can you feel piercing metal?CollapseA sound bitA brief clipWhat can be resurrected from this Pile of pain?Will dropping bombs on caves soothe our hearts?What about buildings?More destructionMore screamsMore painCollapseWho can ease our minds?Who can dry our tears?Who can repair a heart?Only UsOnly YouOnly MeOnly Love
