And The Moon And The Stars And The World - Poem by Charles Bukowski

Long walks at night--
that's what good for the soul:
peeking into windows
watching tired housewives
trying to fight off
their beer-maddened husbands.

    He is good at the art of wheeling loveliness on its hock and planting the reader in the reality of a different world. Sad the views of battered neighborhoods and their battered residents (Report)Reply

    The average relationship and the most daily: fighting husbands and wives because of having drunk too much ALCOHOL. I have heard so much about this CB and most people are quoting him, BUT after having read this minuscule piece of a concise, I am terribly disappointed, especially after having read FLORIDA bt Elizabeth Bishop (Report)Reply
