Summary:
The title sequence of David Harsent's new collection offers reports from an unnamed war-zone. Throughout, various accounts of conflict accrue: a series of discrete images, voices, events, and intermittent despatches - immediate and vivid - that cohere to give witness to war and the consequences of war, and seem to lock the reader into the crisis along with the protagonists.

schema:description"Poem sample:"Not everything dead is buried in that place of rapid shadows. They're all in place, some head- to-tail or arse-up, some cheek-by-jowl or face to face (whether or not they were married), some in place of others who say there's nothing to be said and turn the earth at night and know their place. The markers are blank, since everything's taken as read in a place like that. Not everything buried is dead.""@en
