    FALLING GLASS

    Watching as if through
    A pane of glass
    Seeing the towers break up and fall
    The transmitted image hits us a thousand times
    Each one another shattered window
    Crashing on our heads and cutting us up

    The cathedral bells try to put the shattering
    Back into some greater harmony
    The chiming ringing brass
    Resonates like spheres of glass

    The music of the spheres cannot play
    When shattered – so sad to say
