« on: January 30, 2015, 08:35:04 AM »
A poem that hasn't lost a bit of its edge over the years.

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

You have that exactly right.
Am a huge Bukowski fan, having read much of his output and watched everything I could find on him.
"Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it."

Excellent doomer porn!!

A bit more hard core and not quite as entertaining as one of those other hero poems (a song in this case) of doom, but good nonetheless.

Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something, and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.
