giddy with two gin & tonics mary jo reluctantly moves behind the wheel on this lonely humid moonless night she squirms in the unadjusted seat squinting at the insects zooming in the headlight's glare putting the car in drive her twenty-second ride begins in panic hurtling down a dirt road littered with ruts her right foot straining to reach the gas pedal she approaches the rickety bridge but its flat anonymity makes no impression as she proceeds forward and down into the swift current the tidal splash of two tons of metal unheard unseen unaware the nervous senator walks toward the cottage wondering if mary jo will find her way back he suddenly remembers that a man will soon step on the moon but his thoughts are diverted by the fragile sound of girlish chatter rising from the clammy darkness like an aria or an omen

JIM BENNETT
A Poetry Reading
I went to a poetry reading a place where poets read their work to other poets waiting to read their work heard a poet read a poem about a zoo and every animal was addicted to a drug which was clever because some of the drugs started with the same sound as the name of the animal like herons on heroin anteater's on amphetamines stuff like that but the poem wasn't really about that I find this with poems they say they are about something but afterward you realize they are about something else. the poem about the zoo for example was about a poet being prepared to write anything for money now that would be funny except it was about something else as well I will probably read this poem in a reading somewhere and people will wonder what it is about and only later will they realize it was not about what they thought

The idea and the fishies.
This is the idea. I am pushing through the present like a fist burrowing through dirt searching for earthworms to put on a hook so I can go down to the pond and trick all the little fishies into distrusting their instincts.
