On September 11th, 2001,
airplanes did not just fly
into the World Trade Center.
They flew into people’s homes-
through television, radio,
telephone, Internet,
newspaper and magazine;
news outlets everywhere.

September 11th, 2001,
the day last names
were attacked,
arrested, detained,
changed, and erased,
not for the first time.
Faiths set on fire,
cultures bombed,
beliefs crumbled
to pavement.

September 11th, 2001,
The day planes were
flown through
the veils of women,
set fire to beards of men,
to pages of a holy book.
The day those planes
massacred an entire religion.

September 11th, 2001,
the day parents were executed
in the street behind their home,
children orphaned,
those unable to even recite
the colours of the American flag.

September 11th, 2001,
the day colours of freedom
changed from red white blue
to red red red and more red.

On September 11th, 2001,
airplanes did not just fly
into the World Trade Center.
They flew into people’s homes-
into people’s hearts.
In the form of fear,
and bullets, and
drone strikes.

September 11th, 2001,
the day the largest
military power in the world
could justify their violence,
and not be challenged.

September 11th, 2001,
The beginning of a trial
in which the only verdict
is guilty guilty guilty;
more death more suffering
is the sentence for those
who never committed
the crimes they are
being punished for.

If revenge equates to justice
and oppression is its gavel,
then freedom is Ground Zero.
Do not forget September 11th, 2001.
The day America felt its tremors,
and the entire world mourned.
