Charles Bukowski - As The Poems Go

as the poems go into the thousands you
realize that you've created very
little.
it comes down to the rain, the sunlight,
the traffic, the nights and the days of the
years, the faces.
leaving this will be easier than living
it, typing one more line now as
a man plays a piano through the radio,
the best writers have said very
little
and the worst,
far too much.
from ONTHEBUS - 1992

This is one of the single most honest and beautiful poems I have ever read, I cherish every word that Bukowski ever put down on the page.

The infinitely wise, kranky and hilarious musings of Mr. Bukowski still crack me up. Great choice for poem of the day!
