Writing Lessons from the Usual Suspects

i read Bukowski and i am encouraged.
i like the bare-faced way
he tells stories.
it calms me down a bit, centers me
reminds me to be a little
less preachy and
pretentious.
we’re all in this together
in our own
quirky way and we’ll figure the
rest out
for ourselves.

chipping away at the rock wall of
every experience
for some skinny ghost of meaning
gets exhausting-as-hell
and
sometimes it’s nice to just
kick back
and let the thing be whatever it was
without worrying for
my sake or
anyone else’s.
