Two Poems from Stefanie Bennett


Blanks from the Other World

Suppose the Sassafras spreads its leafage
As far as the far-off "danger man"
Nodding at symbolic warheads.

Suppose the dispirited Mountain Woodchuck
Turns her back
On the Wojak land of legend.

And suppose the fortune-telling Chickadee
Refuses to whistle
"Abide with me . . ."

The cryptic tempest flower wouldn't
Bear too well
                      No sir!



Miniature

As Lady Day
Begins
To fade
The yellow
Bird
Voices freedom . . .

In the blink
Of an eye
                 & working
Overtime he
Harbors
The sky
And its Saviour.
