My thoughts are with the American people on this tenth anniversary, and especially to all those who lost loved ones during the attacks.
From Syracuse to Manhattan
“It can’t be true”
“All of them?”
They gather below the sacred stones
And weep at the Sicilian news.
“We can’t go on”
“What’s the point?”
Satellite dishes line the ancient streets
While orange flames lick the screen.
