Bookends by Stefanie Bennett

Dereliction and white noise
Accompany the terse
Glad-bags of air
That our 21st century
Has on offer –.

The all-night pharmacy is run
By a smiling
“I don’t take prisoners,
Just badlanders” geekazoid
Whose euphoria
Comes from
Ghost-writing
Medieval history
In fugitive French…

Dead Set. My headset shuffles
The enforced 1812
Tchaikovsky overdraft;
Its liquid microbes…
Lost stars… and
The bleat
Of a carillon’s
Final round

Countenance –.
