Moment 11/30/01, 12:61PM
The planets stood in line
like a key in a lock
and the stars spelled out fantastical words.
Today, for one brief moment, no one bled,
and the dailies
all fell silent as the bullets
shimmied back up the barrels.
Today, on my lunch break
a choir of local teenage angels
from the Benton High-school choral
to a crowd of five,
lifting splendiferous voices like
some organic pipe-organ
into the dome,and singing:
Oh, come let us adore Him.
Today there was an extra minute
on the clock.Unrecorded,
