9/11 (Anders)


Between passage of time

and reality sublime

you sit with a mark

that unfolds history,

where requiem

is carved in masonry

and wreaths

embrace steel

honoring lives

time and time again;

but low and behold

you lift a hand

to cheer your lot

fraught with many

a gleeful bunch,

gifting you

forever joyful

with love and happiness

in a clarion call

not to worry:

it's your Birthday! !
