About this title


Poems that ponder the conundrums of existence and religious faith in wartime.

From the Back Cover:


I try to hold my sleep against the dawn

I sleep against the outside light where crows

(nuns and Sergeants priests and colonels)

conspire in the brightening yard

calling me from play calling me from flight

back through the pillow calling me from flight

beyond Saigon, beyond Hanoi, and Seoul

calling me from flight

I fly high beyond the call

cursing God for every shattered wall

I sleep against the clarifying day against a plebiscite

of murdered selves forgotten relatives and mean

authorities bleeding friends parents and parishioners

conspiring with a squad of crows

to call me back again to call me down

to call me back to call and call and call
