The Day the World Stopped

A warm clear day,

in early September,

pumping gas,

I left the radio on for my little sweet pea

tucked in her car seat,

when the music stopped.

On the treadmill,

watching in disbelief,

the reporter at the Pentagon,

a boom,

and then the talking stopped.

Another plane,

then another.

The world stopped~
