Falling Still

All monoliths against the sky

memorials to memory – 

All stunning echoings of those 

twinned towers –

Two decades now, of falling man,

of photographic-epitaph, 

un-fixed in living memory,

and replayed endlessly – 

Now bombers, sold eternity, 

as prize for suicide, 

fall on Kabul still

today –
