Born Into Water

by John Bennett

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

 

Born Into Water

To be born
into water.

 

To be born
into your
father’s hands.

 

To be born
nameless.

 

To be born
& not placed
on a scale.

 

To be born
& taken
straight to
your mother’s breast.

 

There’s something
very right
about this.

 

There’s something
grand.

 

Start here,
gentle people,
if you
hope to
shatter your
chains.

Taken from Born Into Water by John Bennett. HCOLOM PRESS
