    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 must live within my means, and have,
I guess, since I was poor. I am not now,
But what I want is modest. I wear simple
Clothes. I do not drive a fancy car. I eat
The food that I prepare, so, sometimes,
I am satisfied with what we have, our
Stunted love, a thing which is, but can't
Be known, and one I doubt that you'd
Admit, despite your joy in seeing me,
