Best Poem of Lawrence Beck

Your Savage

Is this what I am to you:
That boy who won't stay
In his seat, the one who
Doesn't do his homework,
Laughs, and ends up sent
Away to cool his heels
In someone's office?
Am I Mongol, dressed
In leather, racing, solo,
On the prairie, always
Circling back to you,
And you are order,
Grim and neat, within
A castle, safe, and, if
Not wholly happy,
Reassured that your life's
Moving, like a glacier,
To a careful plan?
I see you on the parapet.
I see your smile when
I wave. I know you'll
Never leave the castle,
But I cannot ...

Reduced To Babbling

Let us say her name is Jane
(A monosyllable is good) ,
And that I am in love with her,
But that my love's become
A trap, as, although she may
Love me back, she is a very
Cautious woman, moral, too,
And clearly bright, and, since
She's these, she takes my love-

[Hata Bildir]
