Three Poems by Richard Benbrook


The Outback



The Mean Alphabet
(a work in progress)

A few years back, in reaction to all the rainbowy, smiley-faced, Ziggy-style sentiments that pervaded our American culture at the time, I began a series of illuminated poems called The Mean Alphabet. I've completed about twenty so far and the end is almost in sight ( any suggestions for the letter X would be most welcome)

This series was no (ahem) mean feat, as on several occasions I came dangerously close to running out of venom. Here are a few samples with more to be posted soon.
