1974 and it's raining

Jim Beck

Telephone pole
Always in the way

1974 and it’s raining
Fast car too fast
If you’ve been drinking
If you’re married with kids
Certainly, It’s not to be discussed
If you’re like that
And not a bad

To be like that

Jim Beck has lived in New Mexico, Wyoming and California and most of his career has been in nonprofit human services. Today, he writes poetry and serves as a public school teacher and sports coach on Maryland's rural Eastern Shore.
