Before now poetry has taken notice
Of wars, and what are wars but politics
Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
from "Build Soil"

    Just read your interview with Blackfive, and visited Mel's blog to see the video tribute. It's hard stuff to read and watch. I could never do what you guys are doing --- not with all the adrenaline in the world! We are very lucky to share a country with men and women like you.

    I'll be back for more.
