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.
