    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

The Eunuch's Lament

I didn't need to learn the role.
A simple snip, and it was mine:
The eunuch; lucky me. They
Have me dressed in fancy clothes.
I tread the marble floors in here.
I make my way from room to room,
To spend some hours with the
Queen, and she, in her imagined
Glory, tells me all about herself,
