It Was Just A Little While Ago

Rating: 3.1
almost dawn
blackbirds on the telephone wire
waiting
as I eat yesterday's
forgotten sandwich
at 6 a.m.
an a quiet Sunday morning.

one shoe in the corner
standing upright
the other laying on it's
side.

yes, some lives were made to be
wasted.
Charles Bukowski

Wow, striking writing. I laughed at how open and honest the last bitter punch is. ~*

I fear far that far to many of us have felt this sense of worthless but are afraid to admit it. Charles wrote his feelings honestly and without forethought.
