Today

All day I have written the date, 9/11, and each time, I’ve stopped to pause. "Oh yeah, it’s September 11." Damn. My heart swells and my eyes water. *Pause* Then I get back to the business at hand.

My wedding anniversary is 9/15, so I remember that day as if it were yesterday, attending to last-minute wedding details.

Today I am home working and watching the kids, and later, I will meet a friend to discuss his manuscript. When the house is finally quiet, I will return to working on two new poems, one of which touches on 9/11.

So for all of you working and writing and going about the business of your day, I have one word for you:

LOVE.
