Guy Bennett, Self-Evident Poems

 

Poem Based on a Comparison

This poem
is not unlike a small animal
living, imperceptibly,
on the periphery of the human world,
hiding in bushes,
crawling through tall grasses,
or cruising silently
in water so turbid
that no one will ever see it.

Guy Bennett is the author of several works of poetry, non-poetry, and numerous translations. His writing has been featured in magazines and anthologies in the United States and abroad, and presented in poetry and arts festivals internationally.
