11/9

September 11, 2016 § Leave a comment

On 11/9 the Twin Towers stood up,

planes flew back into the sky,

and firemen throughout the city

ate pizza and played ping pong

on a day without fire, without

alarm.

After 11/9 everything changed

troops deployed around the world

came home and the makers of

weapons made flowerpots instead,

leaving enough in the treasury

to buy everyone flowers.

If you cant see this, if you are yet

in the rubble of one days collapse,

then you need stand with that

which does not fall, to sit where

the earth is one with the sky,

and you too will be the maker

of flowerpotsand make them big

enough for the blossoming of all.

Where Am I?
