a memory of silent awe

a memory of silent awe shared among us all
above a certain age
delivers me to the day century MMC dawned
& the certainty of the last age collapsed in dust
obscuring what had been blue cerulean clarity
& the firemen who ran up the stairs
displaying dedication duty discipline
& the greatest love of all meeting death with silent awe
