Our 18 Day Post 9/11 Marriage
In a world crumbling in fear of towers
We started our brand new life together.
In a D. C. rich of men of powers
We started our brand new life forever.
While the people walked with ash in their lungs
And a holocaust of five thousand dead,
Couples holding hands as they slowly plunged
To a concrete steel world lacking God head—
Our families came together, a tour
Of joyous night light monument riders
And past soldiers once mobilized to cure
A world once gone mad, now gone to pyre.
Our Shakespeare, “my mother and me”, us, home
In new Alexandria found Shalom.
