Momentul de lectura

“there is a loneliness in this world so great
that you can see it in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock.

people so tired
either by love or no love.

people just are not good to each other
one on one.

the rich are not good to the rich
the poor are not good to the poor.

we are afraid.

our educational system tells us
that we can all be
big-ass winners.

it hasn’t told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.

or the terror of one person
aching in one place

unspoken to

watering a plant.”
— Charles Bukowski (Love is a Dog From Hell: Poems)

Atat ma bucur ca mi-am cumparat aceasta carte din care am scris mai sus si atat de tare regret ca nu o am acum la mine ca sa mai pot citi din ea… Niciodata nu am intalnit pe cineva care sa scrie mai visceral si mai intens despre singuratate si obscenitatea ei, despre femei si despre pierderea de timp, despre mizerie si eternitatea din ea, despre sticla de bere si absurd – de fapt, nu cred ca am intalnit pe nimeni care sa scrie despre chestiile astea. Cu dezinvoltura si nonsalata, ca atunci cand te duci la paine si mai scrii putin despre izolare. Ca-n viata.
