Co-winner of the 2012 COAL HILL REVIEW Chapbook Contest

Co-winner of the 2012 COAL HILL REVIEW Chapbook Contest. These poems serve as witness to the intrusive, residual displacement women experience as their husbands deploy. For brief moments, we learn about the battles that take form inside the bodies of those left at home.
