Poem-Comments About The Comments On Bukowski’s “8 Count” - Poem by Joseph Zar

It is you fuckers that need
To shut up
To stop writing
To stop making like God as creator and aligning yourselves with Him
Please stop and go back to what you were doing before
Whatever it was
Unworthy as it must be
Do not address him by name
He is dead
He can’t hear you
And wouldn’t read you
If he could
Don’t talk of physical pain
When you know nothing
Of the sort
Of any sort
Just go back and ignore me
With your soft hands
And your coffee
You don’t know how it feels
Because you don’t know
You may think you know
But you don’t
You know nothing
Less even
You are not writing because you can’t
Not because you are “blocked”
The only thing you got right
At all
Was the laughter
Laugh now and often much
The hysterically laughing mental patient
Is not the one who is insane
It is you
