This makes me cry every fucking time I read it Mands. Emotion distilled into words. You are brilliant.

Myra - Bukowski never ends for me. He just keeps on giving, for which I am grateful.


No one writes quite like Bukowski do they?

"and to think, after I'm gone,
there will be more days for others, other days
other nights.
dogs walking, tress shaking in
the wind.

I won't be leaving much.
something to read, maybe.

a wild onion in the gutted

Paris in the dark."

Hmm. The literary genes have been passed on. This is a profound meditation.

Saaleha - thanks for taking the time to read and comment. Deeply appreciated.
