Young In New Orleans Analysis



Author: poem of Charles Bukowski Type: poem Views: 8

Sponsored Links





starving there, sitting around the bars,



and at night walking the streets for hours,



the moonlight always seemed fake



to me, mabye it was,



and in the French Quarter I watched



the horses and buggies going by,



everybody sitting high in the open



carriages, the black driver, and in



back the man and the woman,



usually young and always white.



and I was always white.



and hardly charmed by the



world.



New Orleans was a place to



hide.



I could piss away my life,



unmolested.



except for the rats.



the rats in my small dark room



very much resented sharing it



with me.



they were large and fearless



and stared at me with eyes



that spoke



an unblinking



death.



women were beyond me.



they saw something



depraved.



there was one waitress



a little older than



I, she rather smiled,



lingered when she



brought my



coffee.



that was plenty for



me, that was



enough.



there was something about



that city, though:



it didn't let me feel guilty



that I had no feeling for the



things so many others



needed.



it let me alone.



sitting up in my bed



the lights out,



hearing the outside



sounds,



lifting my cheap



bottle of wine,



letting the warmth of



the grape



enter



]me



as I heard the rats



moving about the



room,



I preferred them



to



humans.



being lost,



being crazy mabye



is not so bad



if you can be



that way:



undisturbed.



New Orleans gave me



that.



nobody ever called



my name.



no telephone,



no car,



no job,



no anything.



me and the



rats



and my youth,



one time,



that time



I knew



even through the



nothingness,



it was a



celebration



of something not to



do



but only



know.
