"Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think,
I'm not going to make it.
But you laugh inside,..
remembering all the times you've felt that way." (c.b.)

August 16th,..his 100th birthday,...yesterday.

Landmark, read Charles Bukowski, very well.
It is a pleasure to listen. 🙃
Thanks, 👍

He's often described as, "the laureate of American lowlife".
Decide for ourselves...

The Laughing Heart (Charles Bukowski)

your life is your life
don't let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can't beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you. 😊

"Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink." 🤔

"...she knew what she wanted and it wasn’t me." 😕

"I don't like jails.
They've got the wrong kind of bars in there.". 🍻🍻

Has anyone wrote a greater poem to love, than this?

“I will remember the kisses
our lips raw with love
and how you gave me
everything you had
and how I
offered you what was left of me.

And I will remember your small room,
the feel of you, the light in the window,
your records,
your books,
our morning coffee,
our noons our nights,
our bodies spilled together,..

The tiny flowing currents
immediate and forever.,.
your leg my leg,
your arm my arm,
your smile and the warmth
of you....
who made me laugh again.”

"The most immense thing about beauty
is finding it gone."

"Some people never go crazy.
......What truly horrible lives they must lead."

Happy birthday Charles!
Thanks, for the thoughts, inspirations,...
smiles and hope.
