RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 94006956 LA English T1 The people look like flowers at last : new poems A1 Bukowski, Charles., Martin, John,, PB Ecco PP New York YR 2007 SN 9780060577070 006057707X AB Synopsis: the gas line is leaking, the bird is gone from the cage, the skyline is dotted with vultures; Benny finally got off the stuff and Betty now has a job as a waitress; and the chimney sweep was quite delicate as he giggled up through the soot. I walked miles through the city and recognized nothing as a giant claw ate at my stomach while the inside of my head felt airy as if I was about to go mad. it's not so much that nothing means anything but more than it keeps meaning nothing, there's no release, just gurus and self-appointed gods and hucksters. the more people say, the less there is to say. even the best books are dry sawdust. -from "fingernails; nostrils; shoelaces".
