Brian Beatty On Vasko Popa

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Vasko Popa (1922-1991)

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

Animal shadows 
stalked me across 
a bustling downtown 

and in return 

the bright, shining noise 
of that same city haunted 
my animal dreams.

– Brian Beatty

  1. Folksy surrealism. That's often how I describe my poetry. Popa has taught me a ton on that front.
