Letter composed during a lull in the fighting
Blue star mother
Valentine with flat affect
Elegy for urgency
Meditation on a main supply route
Improvised explosive device
Self-portrait in sidewalk with chalk
A history of yards
Death, mother and child
After leaving McGuire Veterans' Hospital for the last time
Photographing the suddenly dead
The torch and pitchfork blues
Fighting out of West Virginia
In the ruins of the ironworks
Songs in Planck time
The abhorrence of coincidence
While trying to make an arrowhead in the fashion of the Mattaponi Indians
The locks of the James
An alternate history of the destruction of Dresden by fire
Advice to be taken just before the sun goes supernova
A lamp in the place of the sun
