(originally sent out to Bennett’s email list)

He was
trying to
get original
he put
his left
shoe on
his right
foot &
his right
one on
the left
wrote anonymous
love letters
on butterfly
wings chanted
to a
Motown beat.

Alone at
3 a.m. in
his cold-
water flat,
wearing a
One Red-
Cross tunic
& Austrian
combat boots.
