The Blackbirds Are Rough Today Analysis



Author: poem of Charles Bukowski Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links



lonely as a dry and used orchard

spread over the earth

for use and surrender.


shot down like an ex-pug selling

dailies on the corner.


taken by tears like

an aging chorus girl

who has gotten her last check.


a hanky is in order your lord your

worship.


the blackbirds are rough today

like

ingrown toenails

in an overnight

jail---

wine wine whine,

the blackbirds run around and

fly around

harping about

Spanish melodies and bones.


and everywhere is

nowhere---

the dream is as bad as

flapjacks and flat tires:


why do we go on

with our minds and

pockets full of

dust

like a bad boy just out of

school---

you tell

me,

you who were a hero in some

revolution

you who teach children

you who drink with calmness

you who own large homes

and walk in gardens

you who have killed a man and own a

beautiful wife

you tell me

why I am on fire like old dry

garbage.


we might surely have some interesting

correspondence.

it will keep the mailman busy.

and the butterflies and ants and bridges and

cemeteries

the rocket-makers and dogs and garage mechanics

will still go on a

while

until we run out of stamps

and/or

ideas.


don't be ashamed of

anything; I guess God meant it all

like

locks on

doors.
