Warhorses: Poems

Warhorses: Poems - Yusef Komunyakaa

It's just impossible for me to give Komunyakaa's work anything less than four stars, although this doesn't beat Talking Dirty to the Gods, which remains my favorite of his books. Poems on war and violence, family, love...and his style of syntax and language are familiar (maybe a little too familiar at this point). "Autobiography of my Alter Ego" is a standout (he continues to be the King of Titles).
