Bukowski’s Last Poem (and First Fax)

January 25, 2012

Oh, forgive me, for
whom the bells bend. I forgive
you, walking in the

water. Forgive me,
O Lord, who was in the old
shoe, small. Oh, forgive

me in the middle
of the mountains from the voice
of the day and night,

speechless death. Forgive
me the leopard who died last,
large. Oh, let me sink

all the fleets, armies
defeated. The first poem
fax, this: add to cart.

Charles Bukowski

Hey, Bukowski fans: The complete Death Palette Zombie Trilogy is available on Amazon now. Support independent psychotronic fiction and buy it. Do it in honor of Buk, whose spirit lives in my pages.

 

***************

I’d marry Joan of
Arc for her spiritual
way in the kitchen

***************

If Jesus came back
he’d never get his ass out
of bed before noon

***************

To do a dull thing
with style, sometimes you just have
to shit in the sink

***************

Perpetually
clean art is detestable
horse masturbation

***************

It’s not possible
to love a human being
with a hangover

***************

Intellectual
sex is grandiose, profound
and a waste of time

***************

Politics is not
as important as any
good bowel movement

***************

If you’re losing your
soul, cut the umbilical
cord and let it go

***************

If you fall asleep
during intercourse, you can
fuck romanticism

***************

Democracy is
a mirage seen by a drunk
in the men’s crapper

***************

Kill the millionaires
with bad taste and put the ones
with good taste in jail

***************

The dictatorship
of artists is saving the
whole damn crazy world

***************

Humanity has
gone seventy horrible
years without a bath

***************

An opportunist
is a pest with money up
his bloated whore ass

***************

Genius might be the
ability to pee with
style while you’re voting

***************
