    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

For Want Of Grit

The oyster cannot work without an irritant.
It needs the noisome grain of sand to make
The pearl everybody wants, the object giving
It some meaning, beyond being food, and,
Really, what thing isn't food? I am.
I have been consumed on several levels,
Certainly. Mosquitoes take their
Shares of me, and biting flies, and women
Who, however briefly, want someone
