內容簡介 From NO POETRY LIKE WAR At dusk come hydras from the minaretsEach static-stitched and staggering from its lairEach ululating voice a voice begetsCrackling mournfully through the valley air...We'll go into your cage and feed your wars.We were sent by God and by God takenHis anointed and his godforsaken.A captivating, visceral and uncompromising description of America's longest war...Can any war that lasts this long end in defeat? Poet Phillip Martin gives us a beautiful, tragic, and precise depiction of the warfighters' experience; an inexplicable feeling of hitting the highest of highs almost simultaneously with the lowest of lows in an austere and unforgiving environment. Martin's words resonate and transport the reader not only to the other side of the world, taking the reader into the beauty and horror of war-torn Afghanistan, but also into the heart of our own American military subculture and caste. A modern-day warrior poet, Martin has captured something truly exceptional in this collection.NO POETRY LIKE WAR - Paperback Edition is text only.
