"We read their daily news, but
know little of their language and
don't know if records are kept and
it's not easy to get an accurate count and
the small pieces remaining after
a targeted strike, are
more difficult to collect, and
put back together."

This is a fine example of seeing one thing and by a skilled use of layout turning it into something else. It forces the reader to evaluate what is being said rather than merely letting it skim past as just another byte of information in modern day's endless flood of data.

Hello Brian

A marvellous evocation of bewilderment. It must be the predominant reaction of anyone coming into a war zone such as Iraq from a comfortable, middle class western environment.

all of the above and also fab peice of work. The form works really well and fits really well with the wors. I get the impression of fragmentation just as the poem finishes which fits great with the last few lines. Small and succint. Nice one!
