Deaf Republic opens in an occupied country in a time of political unrest. When soldiers breaking up a protest kill a deaf boy, Petya, the gunshot becomes the last thing the citizens hear--they all have gone deaf, and their dissent becomes coordinated by sign language. The story follows the private lives of townspeople encircled by public violence. At once a love story, an elegy, and an urgent plea, these poems confronts our time's vicious atrocities and our collective silence in the face of them.

"At the trial of God, we will ask: why did you allow this?"
I don't read a lot of poetry but this collection by Russian-American author Ilya Kaminsky is a stunning work. It's a poem cycle about war and so has a timeliness and political dimension that is often missing from contemporary poetry.
