You aren’t cool unless you post some. . .

. . .Bukowski. Duh.

* * *
(an excerpt from the poem snake eyes?)

it was not a good day.
there was a jagged wretchedness inhabiting
my part of the world
and now I sit at this machine
tonight
hoping for some luck and some
light
but they refuse to fire,
things refuse to
fire.

  1. I keep thinking of a million fans, caught up in the frenzy of an interstate rivalry, blind to anything but their own love for their team, chanting at the favorites:

    “Over-rated! Over-rated!”

    And sometimes, the favorites fall.

  2. Yep…even steven. It’s funny, because sometimes I read a piece by bukowski that really affects me, and some of his stuff just leaves me cold. But that happens with almost every poet to some extent…it’s just that it seems to be all or nothing with bukowski.
