It's The Hunger That Drives You - Poem by Thomas W. Case

I'm on a Bukowsiesque roll,
pounding them out,
seven or eight a night.
I know it won't last.
It's like a fast.
It's the hunger that
drives you.
And when your starving,
you eat- then rest,
not today though; I've hit
my stride.
And the night is mine for
the taking.
And the words are mine for
the raping.
And my heart, I am staking
on the fact
I will stay hungry.
