Sirens on Second Avenue

Second Avenue is quiet
but for how long?
I wonder
all day sirens wailed
heading downtown
to the wreckage and pain
and lingering spirits
of sheer destruction
the specter of hate
a linen truck
with a police escort
one cop car in front
one behind
going down
to cover the dead?
now there’s more sirens
no peace for long
I hear their wail
and mourning cry
