Bukowski Reads by Matthew Bowers

Style, smile

Mischief

Wiles

behind 

those crazy 

twinkling eyes

Scruff, 

wolf grin

Typewriter echos 

Banging like thunder

across 

a humid, 

steamy room, 

Off

stained wallpaper,

curtains drawn, 

ceiling fan shadows 

like Donkey Xote

Dried, righteous brain


Society is a drag man...

Repression

Succession

Recession

Depression

Depletion

Repeat son


The reason, so many fools

Line up and take charge

Paving the way with

Billboards and skylights

Marching along blindly

Dropping like lemmings 

Crashing in the surf

Below the precipice


Pied piper 

Rod Steiner

On the WaterFront

One nighter

The Ides of March

Desensitized

Pay the debt

Sacrificed

The hustle 

Rent

First full moon

Black tar

Red balloons

Empty 

Room

With

Burnt

Spoons

Candle wax

Dripping 

Blues
