Great idea, poor execution. Perhaps that's the wrong choice of words. Death Notices is a collection of poems that are obituaries for the forgotten men, women, and children who have died in the Iraq War. The poems fumble in stream of consciousness and anger to the point that they are hard to read/understand. It makes sense for them to be full of anger and muted frustration, but they fail in some regards to be readable.
