Stefanie Bennett- Two Poems


If the sky had a voice
I envisage
We’d buckle under
The bent over
Exit wounds
Just as
The willow
In bright water.

RITES, THE Mojave: (In Memory of Flight MH17)

When all else failed
The great heart
Of the Joshua Tree
A Tipi ‘fire-build’
In the desert’s
Arena –.
It was a signal.
It is the signal.
