The Fix…

A Poem by Stefanie Bennett

…In Spite of Monsanto & Dow Chemicals

Mon dieu! I did not expect to find you splayed out
On the recliner
Exuberant but bewailing

The new Great Recession’s turn
Around, land cheats, and
Government laxity

That’d make a penny squeal
Louder than
Bagged bobcats in midwinter.

‘Go easy’ was the best I could do.
‘Don’t forget
Lumbago flares when…’

You sprang upright, stormed
To the baby grand.
Bach’s “Sleepers Awake”

Set the dog yowling off-key.
Apparition you were! Yet how
I miss your state of grace.
