All the sadness comes back Thank you for

and see how differently the impact was felt depending 

on one's role."

"Not Like Orpheus"  
from In the Aftermath.
An excerpt of the poem 
appears below:

       I made myself stay                       
in the passenger seat,
    used my asthma as an excuse,
rolled up the windows when we
    got to the Pile, let others unload 
  water and candy from the van...
