Brian Beatty On Robert Creeley

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Robert Creeley (1926-2005)

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

Robert Creeley

The stories 
I told for years  

all ended 
when audiences 

like forests suddenly 
filled with light 

through the trees
only wanted

to hear their own 
obituaries.

  1. I wouldn't know about Black Mountain College if it weren't for reading Creeley, and that institution has always served as my model for the idea(ls) of an arts education.
