in other words, poem by Charles Bukowski

in other words
by charles bukowski

the Egyptians loved the cat
were entombed with it
instead of with the women
and never with the dog

but now
here
good people with
good eyes
are very few

yet fine cats
with great style
lounge about
in the alleys of
the universe.

about
our argument tonight
whatever it was
about
and
no matter how unhappy
it made us
feel

remember that
there is a
cat
somewhere
adjusting to the
space of itself
with a delightful
grace

in other words
magic persists
without us
no matter what
we may try to do
to spoil it.

  1. I never tire of the truth of this one. Thanks for honor Letters From Traffic with the post and for keeping his words alive and in the world!
