Eight Forty-Six 9/11
Evil at its boldest
Impacting so many lives, the Tower, just moments before
Glimmering, now an inferno, flames raging skyward, cries for
This day emblazons its date forever in the collective worldwide memory.
Fathers and Mothers of tiny children, unborn children,
Only children, and sure to be lonely children who
Remember their parents only
Through pictures. And
You and I and all of us are left to weep and to wonder how and why.
Strength of a country, tested beyond
Immeasurable boundaries. America still stands proud, but bearing an
X to forever mark the spot called Ground Zero.
