I would say that Kamikaze presents family conflict, because the pilots family didn't speak to him after he forfeited his suicide mission.
also inner conflict because whilst flying the pilot had to decide whether to give up his life or whether beauty of nature was a good enough reason for him to stay alive.

Exposure presents conflict and the dull cyclic reality of war "but nothing happens" the soldiers are waiting for something to happen but feel like they are not a part of the war but that the war is distant and far away.
"pause over half known faces" - the numb reality that conflict destroys emotions

im not sure though:biggrin::biggrin:

Welp i havent looked at it in detail yet but off the top of my head,

in expose there is a theme of conflict within man and nature
and in kamikaze there is more of a mental/cultural conflict as his family shuns him for returning.

Both poems are also in war situations(in exposure they are in trenches I believe and in kamikaze, the guy returned from a suicide mission) so physical conflict also ties them together.
