Acciaccato

(remembering 9/11)
even those lesser beasts
on vibrant wings take flight
unto the upper reaches of the mind
into fine filaments alight


through tiny holes
fluttering
the strings of souls
delicately uttering


each and every human being
should hear the choir once, and sing
and revel in Mozart
Shakespeare
every human ear


kings uncrowned
castles downed
but did we find the spoils we sought?
was it as we thought?


or have we simply eaten our own hearts?
