Rating: 3.3
I even hear the mountains
the way they laugh
up and down their blue sides
and down in the water

very little love is not so bad or very little life what counts is waiting on walls I was born for this I was born to hustle roses down the avenues of the dead..........great poetic expression about the life of grievance; it's our life; in every life there is hidden the death; happy and sorrow- the twin name of one life; we have to accept everything to overcome perfectly; great poem penned; I enjoyed

The poem started on a happy note, sinks into sadness and seems to end with a practical view of life. Like the whole life surmised in a small poem. Excellent.

Great poem. In empathy lies the human spirit. Your sorrow be my sorrow tomorrow will borrow your sorrow and we move together in sympathetic harmony.

Does anyone have an impression of what what counts is waiting on walls means.

The parallelism of sentences and repitition of words replaces the need for traditional rhyme.

A beautiful poem from Bukowski. What a relief it is to have this man's work available for us to read. You can feel his humanity. A natural poet of the first order.
