NOVEMBER 11, 2004

It is Remembrance Day in Canada
Veterans Day in the good old USA

I am working from the house
faxes come in and faxes go out

People write me nice letters and send
beautiful pictures through the computer

I say “I love technology”
And then I remember

In Fallujah today
people in tanks as big as trains
are pushing pretty red buttons
and blowing out real people’s brains
