    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

American Machismo

You don't see what you think you see.
You can't. It couldn't come to this:
A flabby man who sits all day inside
An off-white cubicle and does
Exactly as he's told until he gets
To go back home to sit some more,
And watch TV. Oh, no; it hasn't
Come to this. The frontier hasn't
Disappeared. The flabby man
