A State of Mind
I'm a midwestern girl
raised on flat prairie land
of endless cornfields
and deadly spring river-risings
now call the Blue Ridge home
whose size once rivaled the Alps.
Kick stones over the edge;
watch them free-fall tumultuously
like the 9-11 victims "escaping" the flames...

Bizarre state of mind today - have watched a number of mind numbing and stomach turning videos of 9/11... can't stop thinking the 200 plus people who jumped to their deaths... So many awful ways to die... and we've certainly been seeing many of them lately - earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, tornadoes... all within a couple of weeks.
