Seven: Poems 7

83 pages26 minutes


With this collection, Bennett returns to his earlier topic of loss. Loss of
time, opportunity, loved ones, and of life itself. A life reduced to memorial
names or tags on museum exhibits.

Loss includes loneliness on a subway ride, posessions melted in a fire, life
long love turning a slow corner. Keeping an unusual pet solely for company.

There is comic relief, and some pleasant experiences, capturing the small things
that make us human and able to cope and even look forward.

You will meet faces. Maybe your own, disguising motives. Maybe another, full of undiguised
rage in a public place.

Poetry is about experience. Not all of these will be gentle, but you will share
what Bennett has captured for you.

It's all just words until you read them.
