MURPHY, N.C. - Aug. 30, 2013 - PRLog -- In Sightings in the Land of the Dead, the newest chapbook from poetry and flash fiction publisher FutureCycle Press (www.futurecycle.org), author Barbara Bennett tiptoes into the afterlife to see what relatives, lovers, and friends have been up to and reports her findings. With a few sentences, each prose poem brings into focus a character and a dilemma he or she faces. The touch is light, the language lyrical, and the observations moving. An example, "Los Alamos":

He begged for a hole so deep no sound can reach him. What use is death without silence, he pled, eager to quiet the crackle of fire and flesh. He woke to a view of mountains and pear trees. Later, he agreed to haunt a museum. He inhabits shoes, the soles’ stillness, the tongues’ witness.

Barbara Bennett lives in Owensboro, Kentucky. She has waited tables on the south side of Chicago, worked a teller line in Los Angeles, typed construction specs in Joliet, Illinois, recruited foster parents in Milwaukee, directed a women’s center in Salt Lake City, and taught pipeliners in Louisiana how to answer reporters’ questions. She holds a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee and has taught there and at Middle Tennessee State University. For more than 15 years she has co-produced a monthly coffeehouse at which writers read their work.

A Kindle edition of Bennet's chapbook will be released later this fall.
