War is ever-present in these pages. From the Gulf War to the post-9/11 global war that continues to this day, the on-the-ground responses of poets in these collections presciently address our ongoing situation. Proper names may have changed, but the news stays new. To read these pages is to see differently. As Scalapino contends in enough: “Seeing what’s happening is a form of change.”
