"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

i’ve got to pull a lazarus and i can’t even shine my shoes

a day of glaucoma testing  now pretty testy  saw more

blindfolks than i can ever remember seeing   and

seeing is not overrated   talking is   talk a thing to

death   and it will die

 

like 11:11

 

talked it up recently  all spiritual newagey   and now i

see only  11:08  and u know u cannot wait for the universe

to give u 1’s   it will only give u chilblains  where u sit   w-a-i-t-i-n-g

 

and waiting is for godot worshippers  and i am all  heathen  

a follower of a polytheistic religion; a pagan   i need to pull

a lady lazarus  but first

 

come poet    

shut up

__

 

my typewriter is

tombstone

still.

 

and i am

reduced to bird

watching.

 

just thought i’d

let you

know,

fucker.

 

(Charles Bukowski   8 count  1992)

dying is an art
