There is nothing particularly wrong with these poems. They are light and clever and moderately well-crafted, but they violate Isaac Bashevis Singer's fundamental rule about writing. The writer must feel that this story absolutely must be told. I can't say what Beasley felt about these poems, but it would be hard to believe it was an existential exigency.
