Brian Beatty On W. B. Yeats

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)

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

From what I understand
you entertained ghosts
and long before your imitators
pried open asylum doors
to converse with the insane.

– Brian Beatty

  1. I miss the mystical and musical in a lot of contemporary poetry. Yeats brought both.
