Brian Beatty On Federico Garcia Lorca


Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936)

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

Federico Garcia Lorca

He lifts the guitar 
from its brown leather case 

to sing 
his resurrection song
to strangers

placing 
flowers at his feet. 

– Brian Beatty

  1. Poetry without some mystery or a sense of the mystical doesn't interest me much. Thus Lorca.
