Bluebird

There's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too tough for him, I say, stay in there, I'm not going to let anybody see you. there's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I pour whiskey on him and inhale cigarette smoke and the whores and the bartenders and the grocery clerks never know that he's in there. there's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too tough for him, I say, stay down, do you want to mess me up? you want to screw up the works? you want to blow my book sales in Europe? there's a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out but I'm too clever, I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody's asleep. I say, I know that you're there, so don't be sad. then I put him back, but he's singing a little in there, I haven't quite let him die and we sleep together like that with our secret pact and it's nice enough to make a man weep, but I don't weep, do you? (C. Bukowski)

    I am a burning curtain
    I am steaming water
    I am a snake
    I am an edge of a glass that cuts
    I am blood

    Those are my favourite lines from Charles B

    you should check Louis Ferdinand Céline... so under rated, but he was one of bukowski's favorite writers... in Pulp there's a character after him!

    This series of pix is great btw, in line with the quote
