9/11

I couldn’t write
because
I don’t have a story.
I don’t remember anything
but the towers
burning.



And animosity.


At school I pledged allegiance
to a flag half mast
and a country I never
betrayed
a country that had
betrayed me.

I didn’t cry.
because I was
unworthy
of shedding tears.


Who cares if the enemy

cries?
