Vietnam War – Forgotten? In Monkey Screams touching reminders of the way it was. In the words of one reviewer: Monkey Screams  starts with a twenty-page section of poetry called “Testimonies from Vietnam.” It contains fifteen of the best poems I’ve read dealing with the Vietnam War. The very first poem, “Hero,” has a line about “four Marines with blankets where their legs had been, sit waiting for decorations just like mine.” Hard stuff to read, but necessary reading for everyone. Monkey Screams (FutureCycle Press, 90 pp., $15.95) Available as print and ebook though Amazon.
