These Terrible Sacraments by Colleen S. Harris
These Terrible Sacraments tells a story of military deployment and its aftermath, on the soldier, the family left at home, and the family created on return. Told with frankness and told beautifully, these poems speak truth in its many facets. It is true that war is horrible. Even so, it is true that beauty remains in the world. And it is true that we must bear witness to what humanity endures and creates. Harris guides us through the journey.
