Conspiracy theorist: e/11 WAS AN INSIDE JOB

the railway viaduct is painted pale
the slogan’s spraycan black

it took me a minute to get my eye in
upside down‘s not good for me
too much blood rushing to the head
too great a sense of gravity
I feel the pull of the road
jetstreams of wagons

from wrong way up it looked like 9
looked fine
it was only afterwards
I saw that ‘e
buggering up the message
where the date should be

and then I got it
they knew
they chose September
for its sly and snaky 9

the bastards
