Steel Birds (911 Poem)


(photo courtesy of Israel News agency @http://www.israelnewsagency.com)

The entire world?s bosom thumped as one,
as eyes watched the sight of the collision
when Steel Birds with outstretched wings
commenced attacking cities, American
its blue skies became the battleground
contrasted positions of sacred religions
fighting children of the man named, Abraham
opposing latitudes, unparalleled in traditions
US invented, now propelled as weapons
ninth month of year, day of the eleventh
all trading stopped, about the ninth hour
un-forecast weather, raining business letters
tailored suits, unequipped with feathers
desperation?s decision, closed his breath
in street?s they ran, from clouds of death
breathed through nostrils also their lungs
hatred?s emit and power, in collapsed buildings
failed to plan on resistance, by its citizens
and heroes, who saw to an abrupt landing
no success, in reshaping of the pentagon
or in our country?s hopes and dreams
it is our lives changed, but our honor remains in
families? who sacrificed members, true Americans

This poem was taken from my book, "African Heritage, American Experience".

Man The War

O! ye who fight the fight and man the war
the brave defenders of our curling flag
waving, flapping in democracy's soar
for the republic; it cracks, as it wags

O! ye who live the fight with arms galore
the guards of America's sovereignty
for the people and the people it's for,
adverse is sweet; if pay, is liberty

O! ye who fought the fight and manned the war
on duty for country and it's great creed
the declaration from taxation's hoard
saints of mercy; march to patriots beat

O! ye who fight the fight and man the war
May you return to us; to fight, no more

(god bless the soldiers in Afghanistan)

Rhythmic Lulls

What was that?
I whisper to the
air who wouldn't
answer, he was
much too busy in
rhythmic lulls
from our bodies
in tuned to the
heartbeats of the
Earth's core and
center, I hum in
moans or music
without words in
our corner of this
universe in rhythmic
lulls connecting like
the umbilical cord
of pleasure in frenzied
fury I flail, he knows
it is in response to
his feeding from my
womb and center of
our rhythmic lulls
or re-birth of indulgence
womb to man deliverance
in a loud, but quiet way
in our speck of the
universe where labor
generates sleep or
skin deep lullabies

(wrote in response to the last few words of her last poem in Tracy K. Smith post)
