sept ember

when planes met twins
melancholy, horror, and fear
sadness, angst, and shock
twins collapsed on that historic mark
people were falling in love
as a result of the architecture
newspaper, debris flooded
streets, ground and people
trapped.
sparks, excited, ignited, danced
in a display of destruction,
most sank, depressed, bewildered
sept the embers

-n.v.
