About the Book

The poet works backwards and forward from the London Blitz to Vietnam to Iraq and 9/11. The sea is the poet’s central metaphor. An ammunition ship is the vehicle for a journey inside war and the psychological, theological and philosophical implications when one resides in that middle zone of the DMZ, lost in those shadows. The DMZ is an actual, naturalistic zone and also a place of psychological terror. The book charts these terrors at the hands of family, church and culture, and then the escape to the sea, the East, and the women who follow the Seventh Fleet.
