Poetry by Zachary C. Bush

As the sun melts the wax from my wings

-to D.E.M


I hear Peter’s voice rattling between

Drags off a Marlboro Red

And over the wind he says


“My boy, everything comes

full circle,” and, “how you get

in is how you get out…”


And I look down and see

Your face taking shape

In the white-cap sea. Two


Waves break on top of you. Erasing

Your brown eyes and opening your mouth;

I can smell your breath.
