Bruce Bennett's Just Another Day in Just Our Town:
Poems New and Selected 2000-2016
"I don’t know anybody who has written more penetrating lyrical narratives about the relationship between teachers and students while using dramatic monologues and various personas. Whether writing about a mouse drowned in a watering can, meeting a girl on a plane, hitting a deer while behind the wheel, a pet tortoise, or a tyrannical teacher, Bennett shows us how just another day in what seems an ordinary town is really astonishing and anything but ordinary when the raw material of daily life is filtered through a fertile imagination....Just Another Day in Just Our Town is the kind of book that people who claim poetry is beyond them would understand and be moved by.” You can purchase Bruce's book from Orchises by emailing email@example.com.
Bennett is a long time contributor to The Healing Muse, appearing in over 10 volumes of the journal. For more information check out his website: https://justanotherdayinjustourtown.com
