Brian Beatty On Mary Oliver

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to Mary Oliver (1935-2019)

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

Mary Oliver

Shaking off the river
the dog disappears

leaving behind only splashes 
of mud to remind us 

of everything 
deeply moving then suddenly 

missing from this life.
