    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


This town is too damned small for me
To do what I'd do in a city: change my
Job, how I drive home, and find another
Place to drink. I wouldn't have to worry
That I'd see her on a city street. There
Are so many more of them, and no one
There would look at me with pity or
Amusement. No one cares about
A guy who seems as if he wants to die,
