Death Wants More Death Analysis



Author: poem of Charles Bukowski Type: poem Views: 9

death wants more death, and its webs are full:


I remember my father's garage, how child-like


I would brush the corpses of flies


from the windows they thought were escape-


their sticky, ugly, vibrant bodies


shouting like dumb crazy dogs against the glass


only to spin and flit


in that second larger than hell or heaven


onto the edge of the ledge,


and then the spider from his dank hole


nervous and exposed


the puff of body swelling


hanging there


not really quite knowing,


and then knowing-


something sending it down its string,


the wet web,


toward the weak shield of buzzing,


the pulsing;


a last desperate moving hair-leg


there against the glass


there alive in the sun,


spun in white;


and almost like love:


the closing over,


the first hushed spider-sucking:


filling its sack


upon this thing that lived;


crouching there upon its back


drawing its certain blood


as the world goes by outside


and my temples scream


and I hurl the broom against them:


the spider dull with spider-anger


still thinking of its prey


and waving an amazed broken leg;


the fly very still,


a dirty speck stranded to straw;


I shake the killer loose


and he walks lame and peeved


towards some dark corner


but I intercept his dawdling


his crawling like some broken hero,


and the straws smash his legs


now waving


above his head


and looking


looking for the enemy


and somewhat valiant,


dying without apparent pain


simply crawling backward


piece by piece


leaving nothing there


until at last the red gut sack


splashes


its secrets,


and I run child-like


with God's anger a step behind,


back to simple sunlight,


wondering


as the world goes by


with curled smile


if anyone else


saw or sensed my crime
