Poem -- "Poem for a Beauty Dead Man" by Thomas Herr

Poem for a Beauty Dead Man

This is for the Beauty Dead Man
Down the Avenue;

You can tell he’s dead
He’s wearing beauty shoes.

You can tell he’s dead--
By the way
He steps around the beggars;

You can tell he’s dead
His seats are made of beauty leather.

This is for the Dead Man
Funds instead of life;

No-one rents his head
His beauty children nor his beauty wife.

Here’s a poem for you Dead Man;
You know who you are
I cast the poem out to you
I don’t need to cast too far…

Beauty Dead Man you should make me laugh
But ugly Dead Man beauty makes me cry.

  1. Oh, the message here is so poignant and right on the money, describing a man whose mind is so focused on his monies and trade that the beauty in his life is dead to him. Therefore, he becomes a dead man because he lives for material things, status, and other superficial and fleeting matters. You do a wonderful job of delivering a scathing message while expressing empathy and pity for his lifeless condition, even seeing the beauty in him. A beauty that would be lost to him if he read this poem. I meet dead men everyday! Thank you so much for sharing!
