    Residual of 9-11

    steel girders now abridged charter
    scraps of mercantile pride subsumed
    'neath the ashes of freedom's altar
    veiled limbs dissected, liberated
    manifests for future generations
    residual smoke from sacristy
    purifying canopic shards
    frankincense, myrth strained
    into flaring nostrils
    brailled dreams
    into dilated eyes
    as a sad siren
    echoes unspoken words
    rises to a crescendo
    exhaling liberty's curse
