    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

Best Poem of Lawrence Beck

A Dream

Will we ever have a moment, it's too much
To wish for more than that, when we can
Slip away to be together on a Christmas
Eve, so I can look into your face, and
Pledge my love to you again, and admit
That, as an unbeliever, your birth means
More to me than that of a god or someone
Else? And maybe I could find a present,
Something small but meaningful, possibly
A necklace you could dangle right above
Your heart, to give you just before you go,
Before you whisper, 'Merry Christmas, '
And our moment's done.
