In his debut collection, Josh Sapan guides us through a lifetime of love and loss as he navigates death—of loved ones, of crickets, of houseplants—in an American landscape teeming with wonder and the promise of rebirth—in the stars, the wind, the minnows in the bay. In Rx, the prescription is literal (“blue-fog medicine breath”) and figurative (“Love so big,/ it comes in a gigantic red box.”). Sapan offers a glimpse into the sometimes painfully delicate and beautiful parts of life.

On an off-white, textured background, a graphic image of various clippings of construction paper in descreasing sizes stacked on top of each other in shades of gray, white, and blue, with a skewed "Rx" superimposed onto the stack. "poems, Josh Sapan" included below in black text
