Before I start this poem,

Before I start this poem,
And if I could just add one more thing…
A full day of silence
for the tens of thousands of Palestinians
who have died at the hands of
U.S.-backed Israeli forces
over decades of occupation
I’d like to ask you to join me in
a moment of silence            
in honour of those who died
in the World Trade Centre
and the Pentagon
last September 11th

I would also like to ask you
a moment of silence
for all of those who have been
harassed, imprisoned, disappeared,
tortured, raped, or killed
in retaliation for those strikes,
for the victims in both
Afghanistan and the U.S.
