9/11

who could have known it?
terrorists taking no stock
would trade in futures

who could have known it? 
those towers were autumns bridge
tiers coming to fall

Thx Shirley-Anne,

That in essence was what I was hoping for, so it's good to know it has come across like that.

Lovely to hear you read last night at the Baum (great poetry nights). Maybe next time we'll get chance to chat. With a bit of luck me and Nat will be at the Ring O Bells.

Best of

Chris

Touching Chris.

Strange reading the comments from Dave Carr and yourself. I read it as tears even though I saw tiers. Hopes that makes sense!

I'm glad it showed Dave. Given the subject I did spent a very long time - only seemed right.

I was not sure whether I was right to spell it tiers or tears given the wish to convey both. In the end I went with the former in the hope that people reading would feel the latter and understand the duality.

I suppose the key is to give of your best with such delicate and important subjects.

You were missed at Wigan, hope all is good. Maybe see you at the next one?

Best of

Chris

Good choice of words. I bet you spent some time over this. Dave
