Brian Beatty On Richard Hugo

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Richard Hugo (1923-1982)

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

of nearby ghost towns 
I’ve visited more than
