Brian Beatty On James & Franz Wright

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to James (1927-1980) & Franz Wright (1953-2015)

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

James & Franz Wright

The son flees
his father like a river 

with Ohio in the rearview mirror
at the same time it hides 

up ahead on the horizon 
beyond a line of trees.

– Brian Beatty

  1. This is one of many of the tributes I revised for the printed collection. James and Franz Wright represent how much can be said with exactly the right choice of words.
