Chinaski: skewered

70 years old, pool and spa, Acura,
house paid for, a wife and 6
cats,
we’ve got him now, what’s he going
to write about?

(we even hear he’s thinking about
getting a computer).
(and only drinks expensive
wines.)

we think he’s nailed this time,
he’s worked himself into a
corner.

it’s been a long wait but
we’ve got that son of a bitch
now.

surely the gods have him by
the balls.

now it will be
our poems on the page,
our translations,
our glory,
our turn.

yes.

that son of a
bitch.
