About the Book:

Mars is for Poems is a collection of poetry by Aaron Bushkowsky, which zings a meteor's path from cosmos to earth, from the great themes of love and death to their very particular manifestations — the death of a parent, the dissolution of a marriage, love’s awakening in triumph and hope, the grief and confusion of love lost, love distorted into hate. In his poems, sound weaves rhythmic patterns, anchoring the reader the way a drumbeat anchors a piece of music, freeing the melody to soar. Stars and galaxies, planets and their moons, gods and goddesses are linked through human consciousness to everyday lives, to the wonder of new love, the shout of mortality.

What people say:
