That day fishing on Eagle Creek
after you returned from Vietnam --
from what the world means,
what it is,
what it does

you longed for
a spring day
when you were 7
and had it in you
to flash a peace sign
to a girl
from the back
of a yellow bus.

On the truck ride home
you said to me,
a truant riding shotgun,
"Overseas, where
the half-drowned
saved the drowning,
you could learn a lot
from Asian people
you didn't bomb."
