TO LIVE IN A WORLD OF WAR

"I've been far more conscious of what it means to live in a world of war, so I've written a number of poems about war."

"I listened to someone talking about surviving a war experience and she talked a little bit about the cafe, where she sat with her friends, and her resistance to the idea that her country was at war."

"I tried to imagive what it was like to be that woman in that cafe."
