I didn’t find out until later about how

men give their lives to secret

histories, give their families

to the government,

sleep in fat silver trailers in the desert,

live anonymously.

War at home with white jackets and

heavy metal doors and

security clearance.

Ghosts from family photographs,

old striped shirts hanging in the closet, the hot smell of

split atoms.
