    I deliberately closed my eyes… when I realized
    The airplane crashed into
    Those two parallel buildings
    I didn’t even hear
    What the others kept trying to tell me
    My head was buried
    Underneath the interior folds of my skin

    Yes I know I can’t deliberately keep
    Un-dead body parts buried
    In drunken soil fantasies this way

    No…
    Not when the dead still lay awake
    Underneath the cement rubble

    But my skin is burning so much… burning
    Somebody please help me
    Tend to the fire of the ‘Manifest Destiny’

    “Mama”

    It is NOT World War III…is it?
    You told me there was only ONE world
    When I first came

    When did
    Days fade into daze?

    Those others think global fractions now
    They are not like us….
    They are the un-trained ‘we’

    Somehow

    We accept that
    Men divide men every day

    Today
    We discovered
    The lowest common denominator
    Amongst ourselves

    Is hate

    And
    I don’t know if America is wise
    To procrastinate
    After all
    Shouldn’t the left side always equal to the right?


    What does the bible say?

    If Bush
    Solves for “x”…then what humanity
    Will we be?

    How do we graph and re-define
    The slope of anti-terrorist lines?

    Seems like we count the Gods in our own
    Separate ways
    Everybody thinking..
    Their God is most worthy

    Me…well I’m not trying to claim that
    I didn’t hear somebody calling my name

    It’s just …..

    I couldn’t hear clearly…above the sounds

    Of airplanes

    Crashing into parallel buildings


    *we are the survivors*
