    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

My Trade

I stand outside the cancer center, smoking,
At my chosen trade: agent of disorder
In an otherwise too-perfect world. Trapped
In a suburban dream, the uninspired
Architecture of the doctors' offices, the
Lawns which haven't any weeds, the
Glossy patients, shiny cars, the utter lack
Of signs of nasty nature's cruel will, the
Things which grow and are not wanted,
