    Look, let’s give it up. Let’s just lay around and make love and take walks and talk a little. Let’s drive down and look at the ocean. It’s only 45 minutes. Let’s play games in the arcades. Let’s go to the races, the Art Museum, the boxing matches. Let’s have friends. Let’s laugh. This kind of life like everybody else’s kind of life: it’s killing us.

    Charles Bukwoski.

    you’ve got to burn
    straight up and down
    and then maybe sidewise
    for a while
    and have your guts
    scrambled by a
    bully
    and the demonic
    ladies,
    you’ve got to run
    along the edge of
    madness
    teetering,
    you’ve got to starve
    like a winter
    alleycat,
    you’ve go to live
    with the imbecility
    of at least a dozen
    cities,
    then maybe
    maybe
    maybe
    you might know
    where you are
    for a tiny
    blinking
    moment.
