Abstract War Poem.
I liked the overall language, but I prefer less abstract poems, more direct poems. Yes, I would be willing to read more of his poems (or listen to them).
The narration was superb, better than the poem itself, I found. Mather has a uniquely deep voice and this adds to the atmosphere created by this poem and other war poems which Mather has narrated (also on audible).
It is but 5 minutes long, so there was no difficulty listening to it in one sitting.
Not the best of the war poems Mr. Mather has read on audible, but still worth a listen.
