Amazon Reviews: May 10, 2016 This is an immaculately crafted, emotionally devastating collection. There's so much elegant silence in these poems,but the carry a great deal of genuine heartbreak. The language is deft, the images are forceful and haunting. I cannot recommend this chapbook strongly enough. Comment| One person found this helpful. Was this review helpful to you?
September 21, 2016 A beautiful, small collection of poetry that cuts to the heart and head. Crisp style. Sharp language. Some of these poems sat with me for days. Comment|Was this review helpful to you?
August 4, 2016 This is a stunning collection of poetry. Read the first poem "Seventeen Blue".
"Sometimes, I can't thank too hard about what we're doing here in this war. Are we making things better for the world, or worse? We are answering Germany with better guns and better airplanes, so the ways of killing get better. David and I are staying in this little town outside of Reims, and the folk are just smiling at us, offering us everything they can-- bread, apples, wine(which we happily accept). They know the Black Watch is on their side, fighting for them. I'm hoping that America will hear of out good deeds here, but then I get mad at myself for even wanting America's love." -- Jimmy's Journal April 29, 1918
