Charles Bukowski – The Way It Is Now

Charles Bukowski (August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994)

I’ll tell you
I’ve lived with some gorgeous women
and I was so bewitched by those
beautiful creatures that
my eyebrows twitched.
but I’d rather drive to New York
backwards
than to live with any of them again.
the next classic stupidity
will be the history
of those fellows
who inherit my female
legacies.
in their case
as in mine
they will find
that madness
is caused by not
being often enough
alone.
