John M. Bennett:

Luna Bisonte
137 Leland Ave.
Columbus, OH, 43214

252 pp., $30. 00

Gahhhhh! Well over 400 poems by the renowned spitter, teeming with Bennettisms like: "Where the why whys! Where the pause lie!" from "Why Whines"; and "So I langoured, breathed a wall" from "A Glance Back Cast." Results a mutter-to-utter maxitrosity by a poet who more and more seems to be the Jackson Pollock of contemporary poetry--because of his disorienting originality; crudity; size and plain old self-publishing Americanness.--Bob Grumman
