I have a new poem in the war issue of The Pedestal Magazine. This is a poem based on a true story. My dad really did find a dog in the Philippines and he really did name her Zero. He writes about her in his letters home, and, when he lost her as he did in the poem, he and a guy named Whit from his unit buried her. Then, one day as they were passing her grave, they put flowers on it for her. That pretty much says everything you need to say, I think, about the young men we sent to the Great War.
