First off, called J who said he was

well and alive, well and alive, and

that T was also.  This took care of the

two sentient beings we knew in New York,

the two we knew and cared about

First off, we are not as safe as once we thought

                   we are not as safe as once we thought

Terrorism with a capital T and that-

where is the meaning in that word anymore

where is the meaning in that particular piece of fear

Where is the place one can call safe now safe now

Where is the place one can feel safe now safe now

Is it Swarthmore, Media or other parts of Pennsylvania Is it another state, another country, another world

Is it another time, another place, another century

Is it being inside a novel, a play, a movie is it

Is it being inside a novel, a play, a movie

Is it living in side the Operatic imagination

Is it living in fear or fearing to live-

They were both well and alive. I know nothing else.
