    It occurred to me this morning that no matter why I sign onto this site, if there's a Lawrence Beck post, I'm there. I have yet to be disappointed by anything you've written, Monsieur Beck, and that says a lot. Your poems are tight, real, and manage to balance between pure artistry and readability. It is a pleasure to read you here!
    Cheers, Lori

A Dash Of Bitters

Of all the women, who I know,
None mentions Michelangelo,
Or global warming, even elves.
These women talk about themselves,
And they, it seems, believe that I
Am rapt, though audibly I sigh,
As they go on about their pains,
Their disappointments. There remains
No time to learn how I have been.
