    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


The winner writes the story, eh? That's how
I've been made what I am, the Evil One,
The one you hate. I don't believe I am
That bad, but I suppose nobody does.
No tyrant rises in the morning bent on
Being monstrous. His acts always are
Justified. Somebody else will call them
Evil. In my case, that one was God,
And what a shitty guy He is, so power-mad
