Charles Bukowski: riots

riots

I've watched this city burn twice
in my lifetime
and the most notable event
was the reaction of the
politicians in the
aftermath
as they
proclaimed the injustice of
the system
and demanded a new
deal for the hapless and the
poor.

nothing was corrected last
time.
nothing will be changed this
time.

the poor will remain poor.
the unemployed will remain
so.
the homeless will remain
homeless

and the politicians,
fat upon the land, will thrive
forever.

Claire Fontaine at Metro Pictures

Charles Bukowski: like a dolphin

like a dolphin

dying has its rough edge.
no escaping now.
the warden has his eye on me.
his bad eye.
I'm doing hard time now.
in solitary.
locked down.
I'm not the first nor the last.
I'm just telling you how it is.
I sit in my own shadow now.
the face of the old people grows dim.
the old songs still play.
hand to my chin, I dream of
nothing while my lost childhood
leaps like a dolphin
in the frozen sea.

"The Cue and the Ball," 1956, Jacob Lawrence

TWO PHOTOGRAPHS, 2011




Charles Bukowski: working through it all

working through it all

the bravery of some is close to fear
and the fear of some is close to
bravery
and I admire a brave man more than a fearful
man,
and sometimes I am one or the other
and often I am neither.

that's when I'm best: neither brave nor
fearful

just cracking nuts in my warm
alcove.

as flowers strain to grow
as music strives to please

as the ladies love
others.

"Korupcia," 2011, Mladen Stilinović



"Miss December," 1962, Drossos P. Skyllas
