Tuesday Interrupted

by Rick Seabron

Demented birds
Flying nightmares
raping virgin airspace
crash into American routines
rapidly and repeatedly
tatooed on our naive psyches
like snare drumbeats, until we were mindnumb,
shattering glass and hearts
pulverizing concrete futures to dust.
4000 degree pregnant twin tubes ablaze
slowly collapsing career tracks onto themselves,
while birthing a litter of instant martyrs
trapped in twin wombs.
Charbroiled flesh feed appetites for revenge.
Freshly fashioned 30 feet tall steel swords
pierce hate infested skies.
60 story September leaps of faith,
brief cases in tow
cry of optimistic outcomes
to American dreams
