Charles Bukowski - Luck

once
we were young
at this
machine. . .
drinking
smoking
typing
it was a most 
splendid
miraculous
time
still
is
only now
instead of
moving toward
time
it 
moves toward 
us
makes each word 
drill 
into the
paper
clear
fast
hard
feeding a
closing
space.

Hey, I've always enjoyed Bukowski, so much so I named one of my photos after this poem Luck. Oh, and I also displayed our commentary in the description box for those who might want to know more about the photo before they purchase it.

A link to my website www . bydawndesign . com, comments left at Little Sparrows Nest shop on esty. Look for the rainbow, and enjoy momentary fame.

LUCK & LOVE

Learn Reading Stephen and start thinking about the words... an you might catch a glimpse of the thoughts!

Often I read poems an think if the author thought a second about his words... but Charles Bukowski is able to put some ideas in most ordinary words and weird forms... and I've never been more sure, that he knew what we wrote!

What the hell is wrong with you? Who would waste time publishing this garbage... this is the downfall to internet being free speach, crack heads like you can post inconsequential garbage.
