THE THAW    [Stefanie Bennett]
A dam is opening its gates in your eyes …
Perhaps
     The snow on your eyelashes has melted.
Perhaps
     You are visualising some lost country.
Perhaps
     A lone thought like a passing love twinges.
Perhaps
     Our time has gone sour.
Perhaps that blackbird at the window-pane
Signifies what I can’t explain:
     A dam
     Opening
     Its gates …
     Your
     Eyes
     Metaphysics.

HORSE SENSE    [Stefanie Bennett]
My dear Romulus, I must
Concur… all
These little wars
Are too cute
By far
For a pedestrian’s
Inner sanctum.
When in Rome, do
Another
About-face!
Your
      Bothering
Wolf-cub
Brother:
‘Remus’ –.

THE LITERARY LIFE   [Stefanie Bennett]
Beside the back-yard
Plink-
Plonking
Rain barrel
The sallow
Blue dog
And gardenia
Spelt
       … Hope
