THE COLONEL Report Abuse
"The colonel returned with a sack used to bring groceries home. He spilled many human ears on the table... There is no other way to say this. He took one of them in his hands, shook it in our faces, dropped it into a water glass. It came alive there."

JOSEPH Report Abuse
"Now this feel of knife for fish,/ of bullet for something racing through/ the darkness, your voice/ slung on the wires that lapse/ scalloping in the cold length/ of the country between us."

SELECTIVE SERVICE Report Abuse
"There is no list long enough/ for a selective service card shriveling/ under a match, the prison that comes of it,/ a flag in the wind eaten from its pole/ and boys sent back in trash bags."
