Born Into Water

by John Bennett

The first major collection of poems by John Bennett in over 30 years. 156 pages.

 

World Tour

I’m planning a
world tour.

 

I’ll step
off the
train in
Tokyo
Barcelona &
Istanbul
read ten
poems from
the platform
& get
back on.

 

I plan
to end
the tour in
Montreal &
I expect
Leonard Cohen
to meet
the train.

 

Please,
anyone who’s
reading this,
spread the
word so
Leonard
will know.

 

Blah-blah-blah

He’d started saying
blah-blah-blah.

 

He’d be
in the
middle of
explaining
something &
out it came,
blah-blah-blah.

 

He’d stop
come at it
from a
different angle,
blah-blah-blah
this &
blah-blah-blah
that.

 

He’d be
the first
to admit that
blah-blah-blah
was undermining his
credibility but
blah-blah-blah
so what?
