    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

Our Bargain

One eats his lettuce, then his beef,
And rues the way they've come to him,
The lethal means which keep him living,
Even as the world dies. The lettuce is
From Mexico, its poison-coated leaves
From poisoned soil, picked by poisoned
Hands, and packed in cartons, made of
Paper, stewed of chips of forest trees,
And shipped across a thousand miles
