not to worry

he sits there
big in his chair
contented
and he tells me he
walked out on a
wife and two kids
changed his name
started all over
again.

his new woman
brings us
fresh bottles of
beer.

she’s pregnant
they’ve already
named the
baby:

Nero.

I want to bring all of Bukowski's poems online and make then freely available. This means hundreds of hours of work to retype over 1,000 of his poems from the original manuscripts. Your donations will help support this work.
