everywhere, everywhere

amazing, how grimly we hold onto our
misery,
ever defensive, thwarted by
the forces.
amazing, the energy we burn
fueling our anger.
amazing, how one moment we can be
snarling like a beast, then
a few moments later,
forgetting what or
why.

not hours of this or days or
months or years of this
but decades,
lifetimes
completely used up, given over
to the pettiest
rancor and
hatred.

finally
there is nothing here for death to
take
away.

Charles Bukowski

Bukowski always makes me feel either super sad or really dirty.

If you haven't seen the Bukowski documentary "Born Into This", it is well worth watching.
