DAY THREE (9/13/01)

This morning we woke up to find
our cat had bit a mouse in half.
I never saw her kill before.

So now I’m sure there is a spirit in the air.
I worry that the earth’s collected pain
has reached a rolling boil.

But then I think of some three thousand souls
recently released,
gentle ones.
They will add their spirits to the air.
They were not warriors,
but workers in words and numbers.
They did not die with a curse on their lips.
