I’m posting a poem I wrote about 9/11 here.

Please feel free to share if you feel it merits your support.

Hearts and minds

Time passes through our bodies

hearts and minds

like a cold, blunt knife

through butter

Changing our form

hearts and minds

with the heavy gravity

of aging life

Pushing and bullying memory

into the black-topped

shadowed, forgetting corners

of aging life

Hearts and minds

defy time’s violence

holding tightly to memory

pulling love from shadow

Cleaving to pain and tragedy.

Hearts and minds

disciplined by duty

will never forget.
