Two Thousand Yards (After Thomas Lea)

Source & Method

This series of found poems came from the U.S. Army Combat and Operational Stress Control Manual for Leaders and Soldiers (FM 6-22.5). I created all of the artwork using Adobe Photoshop (primarily the pen tool). Artwork for the poem “Two Thousand Yards (After Thomas Lea)” is an homage to “That Two Thousand Yard Stare” by artist and illustrator Thomas Lea.

David R. Bublitz is the son of a veteran. He completed an MFA at the Oklahoma City University Red Earth program, and his first full collection of poems, Combat Pay, was published by Main Street Rag Publishing Company in March 2020.
