    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

Once upon a time, the bus would move.
It doesn't anymore. The driver talks
About himself. He guns the motor.
Diesel fumes begin to drift in through
The windows. Choking, everybody
Leaves, except for one or two in back,
Who deeply breathe the poisoned air,
And stagger toward the driver, saying,
"Only we can understand how skillfully
