    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

Diminished

At ease, confined inside a square inside a square,
One of a stack of forty, with a padded chair,
A desk which may be made of wood, but probably

Just as well, as he would never think to try
To open it.The world outside this man-made one
Doesn't suit him too well now.It reeks of instability,
With light and darkness alternating, temperatures
Which are not fixed, and tasks which come without
Instructions, payoffs for achievements never known.
Sometimes, there are none ...
