Gracefully they move

Like Elephants swimming free

Above earth’s trappings

in acts of worship.

or just something poetic
on a spring morning?

who could have known it?

terrorists taking no stock

would trade in futures


who could have known it?

those towers were autumns bridge

tears coming to fall
