The War Works Hard

Read The War Works Hard by the Iraqi poet Dunya Mikhail over at The Middle Stage. Chandrahas Choudhury is a window into a larger world, his tastes are catholic and international and he's never posted a poem that I haven't liked. This one is very good indeed for precisely the reasons that Choudhury gives. It doesn't hoist itself onto the moral high ground; it doesn't denounce; its tone is an 'adult' one and its understanding mature and broad.
