Analysis of Flyboys II from The Base



Skeletons!
huft at pace...
in rearview mirrors.
As bees droned and
Buzzed the sky...
Fusilage skimmpy
and deteriorating
in flames...
In the skies absent
and vacant each one
In history.
Kisses, vaugley remembered
in a photo...
Kisses, over the beach

Now, they remain...
