Through Our Times

Through Our Times by Mark Busby

by Mark Busby

“Through the small voice of a single figure listening to the jangle and hum of human suffering and joy,” Mark Busby’s remarkable collection of lyric poetry spans decades of events that caught his attention and moved him. The poems in Through Our Times: Occasional Poems 1960-2017 speak with insight and humor of war, education, politics, sports, small town Texas life, literature, and loss. Read these poems for their music, for their artistry, and for the engaging way they present Mark Busby’s observations on our recent history.
