Brian Beatty On Lynda Hull

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Lynda Hull (1954-1994)

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

The night of the eclipse 
applying a new polish the color of air 

the bedridden teenager recalls a book she read once 
that explained why fingernails and hair  

appear to keep growing after 
the dead are dead.

  1. When I was an undergrad and just starting to publish, I attended a summer writing workshop at Indiana University. Hull was the workshop leader. She was tough on my poems in ways no creative writing professor had ever been before. They deserved it.
