A site I love - Bridges - has a loop of memoir 100 words pieces up in memory of September 11. I don't know how often they switch. Mine is in there somewhere. They are full of variety and stunning I think - some good young writers in this crew and lots of feeling from different perspectives.

The piece I have in there is the airplanes one I wrote last year.

September 11 Airplanes

Jet planes became weapons,
silver bullets hurled by hate
at abstractions of greed,
shattered real lives,
orphaned real children
widowed real wives.
