    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


I'm on Lake Street. All the gangsters,
Friends of friends, have told me that
This isn't where a white man goes.
You hear the guns pop in the night.
You see the too-possessive faces
Glare as I come courting at the
Projects, bearing flowers for
Arneshia, who is sweet on me.
I'll usher her into my car.
