    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

One More Reason To Mourn The Passing Of Summer

Fall has come and, almost as if a switch was thrown,
The poets all become nostalgic, mawkish, rueful,
Rotten as the fruits which lie beneath the brightly
Colored trees.

9/11 Remembered

Nineteen years ago today, a woman I did
Not know well phoned me before I'd had
My breakfast."Turn on your TV, "
She said.I did, and watched two airplanes
Filled with people smash into the sides
Of New York's most symbolic buildings,
Both of which came crashing down.
The empty suits who'd been employed
To tell the millions stunned or sobbing
