« Bloof Books Tour: On ten-hour drives, plus a reading report & interview (Peter Davis) | Main | This Just In: Publishers Weekly Reviews BAP 2010 »

September 21, 2010


This is a wonderful post John. I love reading stories about our fathers and grandfathers acts of bravery. My dad fought in WWII in a most horrific tour (Normandy beach, the Battle of the Bulge) and he too had what we now call PTSD. And I love how you make your way to poetry here. Wonderful. Thanks.

terrific piece...twists and turns of bones and bombs...

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
