Contributor Series 1: 9/11
The tv is on at work
By Sarah Endo
(written September 2009)
The writer was in Boston, MA on 9/11.

the tv is on at work–
I see people tumble in the sky

are they still alive
air is soft, isn’t it

the tv is on at work, but
can we please go home

be with people we love
every instant

Sarah Endo’s poetry (Just Born and Flora) has appeared in vox poetica in 2009.

One Response to “Contributor Series 1: 9/11, The tv is on at work”

  1. Kellie says:

    This poem doesn’t deliver. The first half starts to provide a vision of people in and on air, which is a nice visual, but the statement ending of being with loved ones doesn’t satisfy and provides no visual.
