Featured Poem: If I Die in a Combat Zone

By HC Palmer IF I MUST BE KILLED, I wish to be killed by a sniper. His efficient nail does not require a tree or an IED. I want him to remember me, magnified, lit up, hanging on his crosshairs. I want him to believe in a different war we might have been comrades, in a different war he might have loved me.
