the courage it took to get out of bed each
morning
to face the same things
over and over
was
enormous.

—Charles Bukowski

there is a loneliness in this world so great
that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock.

people so tired
mutilated
either by love or no love.

people just are not good to each other
one on one.

the rich are not good to the rich
the poor are not good to the poor.

we are afraid.

our educational system tells us
that we can all be
big-ass winners.

it hasn’t told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.

or the terror of one person
aching in one place
alone

untouched
unspoken to

watering a plant.

—Charles Bukowski, The Crunch

There is a place in the heart that
will never be filled;

a space.

And even during the
best moments
and
the greatest times
times

we will know it.

We will know it
more than
ever.

There is a place in the heart that
will never be filled
and

we will wait
and
wait

in that space.

—Charles Bukowski, No Help For That
