Read full description of the books All the Heat We Could Carrry:All the Heat We Could Carry is a rare, brilliant and necessary book, offering a people who have lived well during the war a species of lyric night-vision, a camouflage night, wherein we are taught to field strip a rifle, but also to think about "the soul,/ a puff of wind/ shot from the mouth." Our wars come home in these poems, through a prophet who's seen hell, who now lives in the aftermath where all is refracted through the searing lens of wounded memory: "the sun now heavy as a blood ag, where it is hard to tell/ the difference between civilians and ghosts."
