New Poem Commemorates Sept. 11, 2001

The author of "Welcome to FOB Haiku" has new work appearing at The Wrath-Bearing Tree poetry feed on Twitter, in a project commemorating the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11.

The Wrath-Bearing Tree is an on-line journal of culture and politics often written from the perspectives of military family, veterans, and service members. Poems there are also often inspired by news events and headlines.

"The poem interrogates my memories and beliefs of 20 years ago," says Randy Brown, "and is intended to implicate my past/present roles both in the production of words, and in the production of war."

"I am once-again indebted to Wrath-Bearing Tree poetry editor Amalie Flynn and her colleagues, for prompting and presenting my work," he says.
