    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

Islets

The sun's excused itself to let me brood alone
In twilight, wondering why the waters of indifference
Rise with every passing year, submerging much
I cared about.A continent has disappeared.
An archipelago of widely separated cares remains:
My children and my daughter's baby, my wife, who's
Long suffering, my motorcycle, not much more.
The house, the yard, the job, the god-damned
Nation, all are under water.None of them
