Bukowksi tribute

Hard Barred

I am hard barred Bukowski relentless

chasing tail under red light

banging heads into toilets

a nice piece in daze

edgy no feeling

I am hard bard Bukowski

soft crucifix in the death hand

fibs pursue tales

of ordinary madness

with disdain and fascination

We are lost on the streets

waves crashing

over the rails

No place for the water to recede

Our actions unable to proceed

Hard barred to everything eulogized

and revolutionized

I just beg and borrow or brag

a nice piece in raze

thoughts rip across broken glass

I am hard barred Bukowski ruthless

to write truth

track history to the source

warped and honest

I am hard bard Bukowski

the best minds into delusion

find resolution in crime

time spent on the hustle

you taking notes sweetheart

We are rusted on memory

entrenched insight

crashed on your floor couch

draining  your supplies

Hard barred to anything fastened

and flattened

No place for the words to retrograde

Our images of lost beats renegade

I just speak and sing or see

documents burn across broken class

I am hard barred Bukowski prime

to steal your cut

raiding madness

steaming up windows

edgy no feeling

we are here to laugh at the odds

and live our lives so well

that Death will tremble
