moist Alined D



Sipping quincunx

Floating headmice ladder

Walk the talking titmouse to the

Iced hat

Dead saints

In the buckets

Well placed in a circle

Multi-red-spin fulminating

Cheese root

Swoll drut

Tear the finger

Drum the forkѐd link bit

Bit the hot lint sausage hymn


Find the

Rare thread song book

Clatter nostril smoker

Believe in biblical color,


Pink ink

The throne swallowed

All the people at once

Crinkling post-haste wanton twice the

Suit Shot

Same wurst

Dance the knocking

Turnip nipped the frog spawn

Locker dripping through the keyhole

Drip Drip

East West

Reft lightning trips

The looter sign shining

Muskrat tunnels under the bank

Of weft

Dog soul

Thirsty rabbits

Simper and whimper for

Wailing whale blues atop the rock

Salt dome

Sot home

Tossing in the

Rippled tweak twixt flippin’

Ash hock ash lock ash sock ash dock

Post haste

OUI a small play on words


(In photo from left to right) Jon Cone, Carol Adderly, C. Mehrl Bennett, Luiz Bravo, and John M. Bennett alternating lines and taking turns with starting each poem and reading aloud each poem at the Motley Cow Restaurant in Iowa City.


Podrido es






a pear buttered plum, a

a numb rum, a dumb ditty plum



Heat, light,, color –

Do it in another

So where did that long song come from?


Jazz riff

one two three four

Let the bamboo move on

como tuerca invisible


face change

opened eyes clue

glue fork singing in the rain


change face.

April Fourth Fool

A matchbook edition of ten APRIL 4th FOOL by CMB

I’ve seen too many phrases
Altered – Chopped – Cut and Spliced
The buzzing electric blender of words
Never stops making more poetry
Unleashing the newest coolest noise.

With this lance I spear
Pears, fish, old socks, and books
Today’s mail, yesterday’s coffee
Tomorrow’s promised clean
Laundry and a packed suitcase.

Let me punch their poise
Let me peel their pulp
Let me pipe and pander
Past all those pairs of pious
Pink pretentious pretty ears.

Black cotton string loops
In one ear and out the other
Tightly around their teeth and
Down the throat until it’s a
Vertical line – a dot below it.

Branch out like a fractal
Mow your hair like a lawn
Line the coffee cup with fur
Yes it’s all been done before
Now it’s theirs mine and yours.

Written in the car between Columbus and Mt. Vernon, Ohio and performed after Thanksgiving dinner in Mt.Vernon Ohio by Dina Sherman, John M. Bennett, C. Mehrl Bennett, and John Also Bennett (2010)
