John M. Bennett

Clog Clog

- for Uncle Al Ackerman

clog the pesto with your hairdo

hairdo whistle splashed ahead ,your noose

noose number sagging ham a drink

drink the ladder crash and pointing

pointing past the quicksand ,mice grin

grin the hallway thick with ants

ants and toilet bowl ,ice your neck

neck with nuts ,your uncle strolls

strolls beside the prison ,shiny walls

walls ,mailbox ,sofa ,bone and bloom

bloom the glistened headphone ,sopping hair

hair or sandwich ,cough or glassy lawn

lawn dry hip brace collapsing in the kitchen

kitchen dog ,breathe the drain ,rice and clog
