a little buk

your life is your life.

don’t let it be clubbed into dank


be on the watch.

there are ways out.

there is light somewhere

it may not be much light but

it beats the darkness

be on the watch.

the gods will offer you


know them, take them.

you can’t beat death but

you can beat death in life,


and the more often you learn to do it,

the more light there will be

your life is your life.

know it while you have it.

you are marvelous.

the gods wait to delight

in you

by Charles Bukowski
