Poetry’s about but­ter­flies and lips as soft as rose petals, right? Yes, bad poetry. Con­sider that po­ets come from all walks of life, in­clud­ing Viet­nam War sur­geons in a daily strug­gle to rec­on­cile mem­o­ries of the bat­tle­field. And faced with the hor­rific im­agery in some of these po­ems, we can only hope putting po­etic words to pa­per brings some peace to H. C. Palmer. Cur­rently, eighty-one year-old Palmer heads up a writ­ing pro­gram for veter­ans in Kansas City.
