(My humble attempt at a nod to Mr. Bukowski.)

i sat in the office
trying to write something new
all is silence in the halls of artillery
a rare day of quite and calm

the mind is a tricky beat
flitting in Jungian style
wonder if I've lost the knack

cut to the third scene and find
me on the crapper
committing to paper
the only thing
to come out of me today
that was worth a shit

I actually quite like this. Methinks Pavlovian would work better than Jungian though. But my two cents aren't always worth a shiite. I remember mentioning the Bukowski thing the first time I commented on your posts. Love his work but could never quite capture his spirit in words.

I envy you that.

Right after you mentioned that I ran to the book store and picked up a couple of his poetry books and I really like his style. Poetry has not been on my mind much lately but this popped out of me the other day at work and I had to jot it down. I've got short stories on the brain lately, working on one about an alarm clock from hell right now...weird stuff.

Party Charlie
Hey, thought I'd let ya know my FB page is down for the foreseeable future. Closed it soon after our discussion about the can you? feature. FB annoys me beyond belief sometimes and, being the poster boy for irritableness, I shut the dang thing down.

Still waiting for post though...
