97 Fires for Hank
dannyprice

tough motherfucker full of drinks
 1
and fights, and piss, and cum
 2
 
 
when one day seems like a lot
 3
i wish i was Bukowski
 4
 
 
a man without a thousand friends
 5
a man without a thousand lovers
 6
a man without an ounce of respect for
 7
a boss
 8
or a president
 9
or a father
 10
or a policeman
 11
 
 
with love
 12
true love for the bartenders
 13
and the lowlifes
 14
and the loose women
 15
 
 
the scumbags got their stories
 16
too
 17
 
 
when i am staring down the letters
 18
looking for the rabid dog who wants to be
 19
a sweet pup
 20
i am thinking of Bukowski
 21
 
 
when i pass by the bars
 22
or the liquor isle
 23
i am thinking of Bukowski
 24
 
 
when i fall in love with a woman
 25
i am thinking of Bukowski
 26
 
 
when one day seems like a lot
 27
the fact that i never finished Pulp
 28
is just enough
 29
 
 
the shit under my fingernail
 30
is just enough
 31
 
 
a fly's busted wing
 32
and a mosquito's broken twat
 33
are just enough
 34
 
 
and when one day seems like too much
 35
i read Cause And Effect
 36
and then i read it again
 37
and again
 38
and again
 39
 
 
until i know i've read it
 40
just enough
