Charles Bukowski - Eulogy To A Hell Of A Dame

some dogs who sleep ay night
must dream of bones
and I remember your bones
in flesh
and best
in that dark green dress
and those high-heeled bright
black shoes,
you always cursed when you drank,
your hair coimng down you
wanted to explode out of 
what was holding you:
rotten memories of a 
past, and
you finally got
by dying,
leaving me with the
you've been dead
28 years
yet I remember you
better than any of
the rest;
you were the only one
who understood
the futility of the
arrangement of
all the others were only
displeased with
trivial segments,
nonsensically about
Jane, you were 
killed by
knowing too much.
here's a drink
to your bones
this dog
dreams about.

I always like eulogies. They say so
much about life and death and they are
if by Bukowski so raw and honest.
Reading Bukowski is like having
a shot of taquila.
