Poetry makes things happen, makes us happy by making things happen. Concoct meanings as you wish, sort and sift them, discard them in the end and enjoy the machinery of the poem at work. Poems make... More > little things happen, but worlds are made of little things, lives are made of little things. A poem should mean and be and do, simultaneously and sequentially. Open this book to page 12 and read "found the fistula," which might be thought of as a kind of mini ars poetica...Read a poem once and you know that it exists. Read it twice and you might think you know some of what it means. Read it three times and you suspect it of nonexistence. The poem will not sit still for your inspection. While reading it the fourth time you suspect you have some sort of slithering, slippery, shape-shifting chimera before your eyes. It is made of signs and sings and sounds and sooouuunds, slimy shifting symbols and sticky surfaces...Poetry makes us happy by making things happen. - Jim Leftwich< Less

If there's one thing I've learned from reading John M. Bennett's poetry for 20+ years, it's that things can change in an instant. At first you think some of the pieces you've been reading are... More > hardcore concrete poetry, poetry of the physicality of words, of expression, the mechanicality or instrumentality of thought. But then you happen to watch a performance by John and you've got the book in your hand, and suddenly you realize that a certain percentage of the poems, or even of any given poem, might suddenly become a very succinct notation for an agile, well oiled vocal performance where some strange fog is playing the 'john-horn' or its fog suit avatar. There are collaborations, works inspired by travel and friendships, poems in Spanish and French, and engagement with the entireties of many avant-garde traditions and anti-traditions. John M. Bennett is a national treasure. -Lanny Quarles< Less
