Brian Beatty On e. e. cummings

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to e. e. cummings (1894-1962)

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

e. e. cummings

Forty-nine avalanches
of ice and snow
-broken branches later, 

no wonder tree silhouettes 
seem so tragic, so familiar. 

The winter season dis
appears our fingers and toes
hungry as a (white) rabbit 

after a magic show.

– Brian Beatty

  1. Minnesota, where I live, is a long way from the California desert. Right now, for instance, there's still snow in my back yard. And what winter does to trees around here can be cruel.
