Charles Bukowski - It's Ours

there is always that space there 
just before they get to us 
that space 
that fine relaxer 
the breather 
while say 
flopping on a bed 
thinking of nothing 
or say 
pouring a glass of water from the 
while entranced by 

gentle pure 

it's worth 

centuries of 


just to scratch your neck 
while looking out the window at 
a bare branch 

that space 
before they get to us 
when they do 
they won't 
get it all
