    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'm going to say the dreary air, and not
The bourbon, not the parallels, propels
Me down the bullet track into the seventies,
And all the pining I did then: the afternoons,
Asquirm, at once discomfited, almost within
The grasp of Molly, my first love, beside her
Husband, my best friend, the one she wanted,
At my side, possessed of greater charm than I;
The sweaty march to find the one I'd come to
