Telling It Like It Is - John Bennett (Small Press Friday)

Telling It Like It Is - John Bennett
I've decided to
stand back
from the
truth &
tell things
like they
really are.




Some days, some days, only John Bennett will do. This Small Press Friday is one of them.  If you need a taste more, try Battle Scars on for size

It fits.

And is from one of my favorite small presses today, Kamini Press of Sweden. And tell Henry I said hello.

today again
death draws nearer...
the wildflowers

someone else's affair
you think...
lanterns for the dead

That's the perfect way to describe him: Some days, only John Bennett will do.
