Those who know me well know that I'm sort of fascinated by the Vietnam War. I'm not really a historian, but I'm interested in the psychological ramifications of the war, particularly as it affects my generation, the children of the men who fought there.
I haven't written a lot of poetry this year, but a War Poetry Contest did get me to sit down and type awhile back.
Like last year, I was a finalist this year. No money for me, which was a little disappointing, but I did get the poems put up on some slick-looking webpages. Check them out if you're interested:
2007: "A marking, for each and all"
2008: "Zeno in the jungle" and "Through the window of a restaurant in Little Saigon"
