Rob Plath

1 OUT OF 6 


bukowski claimed
he punched out six poems
to get one great one,
& a dozen or so
to get two beauties, etc.

so hammer the hell
out of the abc’s, son-of-a-bitch

you may not get praise
for the shit, for the garbage
but know it’s all really
beauty warming up 





A LONG LINE OF SHADOWS


we
got
fucked
most
by
being
born...
anything
else
we
suffer
is
just
a
shadow,
merely
a
reminder
