WHILE AT WAR
Do they have parasols in Afghanistan?
Do awol Canadian soldiers drop ‘flesh-toned’
uv cream to help dark faces
blend into the landscape?
Does sand pile around you
if you stand still,
shading you from the sky
and the things that fall from it?
From Blissful Times, BookThug, 2007
More to come on Alland and her book in the coming weeks, but I thought I would offer a little teaser here for you on this virtual Friday.
