5 lifetimes in 5 minutes

Posted to Action Poetry




there is only so much a person can take,
and i figure it's just a matter of time before
bukowski's voice, screaming at me down the long years,
makes it's way
clear
to this bleak blank box
and shakes me from my apathy office sickness delirium
lifts me as though on a wave
and tosses me into a smile
