Bikeman: An Epic Poem

Written by Thomas F. Flynn

On the morning of September 11th, 2001, after American Airlines Flight 11 struck the North Tower, journalist Thomas F. Flynn

"Hastily, and with a purpose,
[loaded] the journalist's tools:
pen, note pad, phone, into a bag"

and got on a bicycle and rode to the Twin Towers. There, rather than simply reporting on a story, he became part of it. This moving book of poetry, inspired by both Flynn's experience and Dante's Inferno, is the result.
