Brian Beatty On Dylan Thomas

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Dylan Thomas (1914-1953)

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

Dylan Thomas

The sun burns going down
like a pour of cheap whiskey.

For all your talk, you don’t raise 
a fist against the night.

You hide behind bolted 
doors pained by the twilight.

– Brian Beatty

  1. The po' biz could use a new Dylan Thomas. I like a bit of madness now and then.
