Hard Landing

By Jim Bennett

Poetry | Paperback, eBook


Not for children, nor squeamish adults, this collection has some very tough experiences waiting for the reader. You may be in, or out, of one of them. There are also some normal relationships, and some pieces written entirely for fun, including ten salacious limericks. Contrast these with Satans' Gift, Childhood End, and Dark Meeting. Forms range from almost a happening (Convex Hull)through simple prose, up the complexity list to include a villanelle. For the literary, there is a sonnet. For all readers, the pieces are in the form that they are: a bit like sculpture, in that the idea inside escapes in the form that was made possible by the first shape of the rough outline. Don't worry about form, read and enjoy.



Leave when you don't want to. Talk to a subway driver about jumpers. Shudder when passing a schoolyard mesh fence. Try to explain all the meanings in a deliberately meaningless sentence, until it becomes coherent. Have coffee with a vagrant. These are more relevant, imho, than job titles, educational status, or where someone worked. This author had a 'real job' in data processing, finance industry. If you bank in Canada, it's pretty much impossible you don't use at least one application he was involved in. The cover image is of Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro - taken by the author. The title poem is an amalgam of bad experiences. This author lived in, or very close to,these situations. Now they are open for you to enter, explore, and safely leave.
