Sway With Me

Rating: 3.3
sway with me, everything sad -
madmen in stone houses
without doors,
lepers steaming love and song
frogs trying to figure
the sky;
sway with me, sad things -
fingers split on a forge
old age like breakfast shell
used books, used people
used flowers, used love
I need you
I need you
I need you:
it has run away
like a horse or a dog,
dead or lost
or unforgiving.

The ease of reading reading B is not just his simplified idiom. His ideas are 'a frog trying to figure out the sky' fascinating.

Love it. No one writes like Bukowski. He is an original.
