    Been working 24/7 for the past 2.5 years. Actually had some free time on the 4th of July. So I thought I'd post a few past works. I do miss this place for some strange reason.

    Few of Bukowski's thoughts (quotations) have been rephrased, especially in the end lines..
    love, that
    dwells in you
    like the tears in eyes, (when gets hurt)
    and it comes only
    when you lose and forlorn,
    and this loneliness sometimes feels good but never feels right.
    As this heart only be filled with unforgotten moments
    of pleasure and pain.
    (then WTH my heart swarmed with,
    that smeared all the beauties around) :
    love and not to be loved?and
    to be and not to be...
    We all are here my dears
    to laugh at the odds and
    never complain, and should
    live our life, as to ponder
    even a Death
    if it to take us.

    Like a circus clown, he is grimed with chalk-
    white-dust. His eyes are slits through which
    the colors of life, those of red, yellow,
    green, and blue beam through. For this show
    he carries a boy in his arm whose face
    is only half-painted, half-powdered.

    Neither one can return from where
    they have been, a place where terror enters
    through the eyes, displacing all fears,
    leaving wide, black pupils in its wake.
    Like real circus clowns, they seem to laugh
    obscenely at something. At us?At it?

    Maybe behind us, or nowhere
    we have been. We applaud them madly,
    for they were brave to be funny and chalk-white.
    When these clowns cry, we will have been
    long gone, our seats having folded themselves
    against the half-empty pop-corn bags.

    But, then, the man turns towards where
    the audience should be and to seem more
    comical than he already was, he bows
    to show no-one an ever-so faint
    rivulet of dark crimson that runs
    from the center of his head to the middle
    of where the shadow of an ear should appear.

    This time, they had to pay the higher price,
    the one which only true clowns must pay;
    for the privilege of entry into the the absurd.

      Well, I guess you never know for sure. (You moved up on my list though for referencing Bobby D in your post. Nice job with that one!)

    I read second time the poem of Salini Nair " A letter to humanity" which I think that the concern shown in the poem evading responsibility and assistance to needy is a problem to day. Let us awake in our conscience regarding the concern I think.
