Remember

Remember

 

The shadow of the towers

Still casts itself

Down the streets

It is a revenant

That walks in dreams

It is dust

In the eyes

It is dust

In the nose

It is dust

In the mouth

It is choking ash

It is bits of bone

Wrapped in thousands

Of tiny boxes

Ferried

Over the river

To the homes

Of the living.

It is something

To be remembered

And not forgotten.

 

From, “Compass, New and Selected Poems”
