At the corner of hope and glory

Robert Beveridge


She stands

on the corner

in her metallic

blue dress

which hugs her

like the dressing

on a wound

like a beacon

to the cars


she's an actress

from Topeka

come here

to find work


she is astonished

to find all her johns

are film producers



Robert Beveridge makes noise ( and writes poetry just outside Cleveland, OH. Recent/upcoming appearances in Chiron Review, Zombie Logic Review, and The Literateur, among others.
