Brian Beatty On Jim Harrison

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Jim Harrison  (1937-2016)

I wouldn’t write at all if it weren’t for myriad writers before me whose works showed me what was possible. The poems of this series are small offerings of respect, of thanks, to those muses. – Brian Beatty

Jim Harrison

Bears everywhere
sitting upright on tree stumps
like sleepy Buddhas.
