Brian Beatty On Edward Dorn

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Edward Dorn (1929-1999)

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

Edward Dorn

In a dream once I took a train
journey hobo-style up over mountains.

My trip west ended in California out in the desert 
where I befriended cowboys with no use for horses or guns
and, of course, stoner show business types high as the stars in the sky.

Like most revolutionaries you read about in books
we dared to secede but failed to succeed.

So far, anyway. So far.
