Brian Beatty On Samuel Beckett

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Samuel Beckett (1906-1989)

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

Samuel Beckett

Center stage
a lightbulb 
big as a noose
swings in the breeze.

A janitor enters pushing 
a broom a broom a broom.

The audience 
stampedes toward 
the theater’s French door exits 
out into a darker dark.

– Brian Beatty

  1. Beckett wrote masterpieces in French as well as English. He was also equally adept rendering the existential and the absurd. What more does any reader need?
