Though I Haven't Been to Baghdad
Author: Margaret Rozga
Publisher: Been Press (2012)
"The poems in Though I Haven't Been to Baghdad throb with the anxiety of those left behind: mother, lover, friend. They are finely tuned to the fractures in daily life when a child is at war, when a child is wounded in war—how language itself stutters through fear and grief. As we mark ten years at war—wars most of us prefer to forget—Peggy Rozga's striking poems tell us, Look. Here. This is the true cost of war. Here."
