Paths to God - John Bennett
A Zen monk
A little something from John Bennett, who won't back down, who tells it like it is, and who has a low tolerance for BS. Check out his work here at Hcolom/Vagapound Press and drop him a line @ firstname.lastname@example.org. I love his tribute to another small press icon, Kell Robertson, which you can find at the always in your face outlaw poetry network.
John Bennett, who spends a good deal of his time doing what he notes of Kell: bringing Moloch to its knees.

a monk beats his bowl--
by now a dent
in the mountain!
