Written in a direct, conversational style, the poems in "Sun Bear" display full-force why Zapruder is one of the most popular poets in America.From "I Drink Bronze Light": "Great American summer lakesright now I am flying above youthrough a rare cloudless transparent skyback to the city where it is alwayscold even in summerthe round hole I press my face againstshows only a blue expansewith white sails belowspeckled exactly the waythe Aegean would have beenthree thousand years agoif one could have seen it from abovemaybe riding in the dark clawof a god who didn't care. . . ."Matthew Zapruder is a poet, translator, and editor at Wave Books.
