A Room of My Own: Twin Towers Tanka

twin towers
flamed in the azure sky ...
for years now
my American friend afraid
of riding elevators

Note: Below is another tanka about the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks:

after 9/11
I had to shave off
my long beard ...

the new temp tells me
with a stained-teeth smile
