from my bed
I watch
3 birds
on a telephone
wire.
one flies
off.
then
another.
one is left,
then
it too
is gone.
my typewriter is
tombstone
still.
and I am
reduced to bird
watching.
just thought I’d
let you
know,
fucker.

  1. So yeah, I get the Bukowski twin connection. What I wanna know is what’s with CB’s hand?? That totally freaks me out.

  2. Oh, and computer =tombstone. Yeah, I get that in spades, blackbirds, crows, for pete’s sake.

  3. Seriously, CB’s hands are all Black Hole Sun. Yikes.

  4. That’s a photo angle thing. His arm, his entire life, was never fucked like that. Now his face, liver, etc., that’s another story.

  5. * 1 pound Italian sausage
    * 1 minced onion
    * olive oil
    * 4 cloves garlic, minced
    * 2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
    * 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
    * generous splash wine
    * 1 tsp white sugar
    * 1 tsp pepper
    * 2 tsp salt
    * dried basil, oregano, parsley (scant tbsp each)

    In large pot, cook onion and sausage in oil until translucent and browned, respectively. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds until aromatic. Add everything else and simmer covered on low for 60-90 mins. For best results, prepare sauce the day before and allow to sit overnight in fridge.

    I said the secret was sugar and wine but canned tomato type matters too. The cheapest organic brand will do but use Red Gold if you can find it

  6. Bukowski August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994 was a genius, American master, misfit, drunk, womanizer. His life and work detail an immigrant’s story, postal worker, slob, barfly, mistreater and champion of women, and someone who chose not to get caught up in World War II fervor so prevalent during this time. His writing is gritty, real and from the heart of someone shaped by the values but also the falseness, naivety, igmorance, and brutality of the 50’s, 60’s and until his death.
