Mumbling in a Hole: a Chapbook by John M. Bennett
(September - October 2005)



Pull check

pull and hop nap and tumble wrap and
usher off the dusty dripping closet
paged and stapled like a dumpster
what you could pile like rancid sheet

mile and ash

the log funnel drained )the plug drop
custard the )junk trap laundered the
hunch )cap doubled the link boot
)uttered the cheer joke guttered

smite and hash

was your boulder numbered like a book?
was your plumber crowded like a deck?
was your folder lumbered like a cook?
was your stumble mounded like a check?
