Best Poem of Lawrence Beck

Nonentity

John's up. I see the light in his kitchen.

Evening, weary, not tired. He'll probably
Wave while he's using his grill, and he'll
Go to bed knowing that he's an accountant.

To signal it's confused by me. "What is
This creature here, alight? Is it one which
I ought to fear? " I stay in place, stare back,
Inhale. In time, it turns to walk away.
It does so slowly, sensing, it would seem,
