Brian Beatty On Besmilr Brigham

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Besmilr Brigham (1913-2000)

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

Besmilr Brigham

I don’t recognize 
the leather-gloved hands 

lifting the ax any more 
than I know by name

the yellow fireflies blinking 
at the door.

  1. I found my way to Besmilr Brigham via CD Wright whom I discovered via Frank Stanford.
