Charles Bukowski - These Things

these things that we support most well 
have nothing to do with up, 
and we do with them 
out of boredom or fear or money 
or cracked intelligence; 
our circle and our candle of light 
being small, 
so small we cannot bear it, 
we heave out with Idea 
and lose the Center: 
all wax without the wick, 
and we see names that once meant 
like signs into ghost towns, 
and only the graves are real.

SbT9Ne Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday. It as always useful to read articles from other authors and practice something from their websites.
