"Again": a Charles Bukowski Poem; "The Shadows"; Second Story Books, Dupont Circle, Washington DC






From the Los Angeles Times

One of the better poems in a book I have just bought in Dupont Circle (Second Story Books).

Might make a good Dylanesque song?

Also entitled "The Shadows"


"now the territory is taken,

the sacrificial lambs have been slain,

as history is scratched again on the sallow walls,

as the bankers scurry to survive...

as the oceans gobble the poisons of man..."


Poems by Charles Bukowski on Poem Hunter

Nirvana, read by Tom Waits
