a poem

I`d never read any of Charles Bukowski until this week. My younger brother recommended him, and I have had some time to read some of his poems. They hit me like a baseball...I couldn`t stop reading one after the other. He wrote for another time, but his words are so true today. They will be true for a long time, I think. People are people, and he really got people down pat. that, to me, is a great writer. Here is a short untitled poem:

you begin by starving in cheap
and you end up by
asking your lawyer
to keep an eye on your
tax accountant.
