"The Last War Poem" to be featured on 40 & Forward

One of my classic pieces, "The Last War Poem," was originally featured in the anthology Bamboo Among the Oaks in 2002 and later in DEMONSTRA in 2013.  It will be reprinted online later this month at 40 & Forward, the new blog of the Southeast Asian Resource Action Center in Washington D.C.

The poem is one of my early efforts to examine the journey of Lao and Hmong veterans of the secret war for Laos between 1954-1975, and in many ways was an early example of what would come to be my signature style with poetry over the last decade.
