And read Kathy Kelly’s record of Khamad’s long pauses as he describes how ‘war does this to your mind’



I am a boy seeking love,
but alas I live on the empty hills,
on the only land I’ve known
It hurts to tell you that they killed my father.
I miss him
and wish he were here.
My grandma tells me that loss brings strength;
I am not too sure
