September 11, 1997


it starts of slowly, a subtle pounding of the defences

little things to be permitted

while the walls hold off the greater guns

small and poisonous weapons become food

and the walls begin to fall upon their crumbled foundation

defeated from within


only when we wish to fall

will we fall


It Starts off Slowly
