Read an Excerpt

“..when a war ends, what does that look like exactly?


do the cells in the body stop detonating themselves?


does the orphanage stop screaming for its mother?


when the sand in the desert has been melted down to glass


and our reflection is not something we can stand to look at


does the white flag make for a perfect blindfold?


yesterday i was told a story


about this little girl in Iraq, six-years-old,


who cannot fall asleep


because when she does


she dreams of nothing


but the day she watched her dog


eat her neighbor's corpse.


if you told her war is over


do you think she can sleep?”


―Andrea Gibson, The Madness Vase
