I Am Not Ready for September 11th

I am not ready for September 11th.

I am not ready for the very special episodes.

I am not ready for the talking heads’ take.

I am not ready for America’s wound to be picked at.

I am not ready for the stories.

I am not ready for the children of parents lost that day to talk of their hurts.
