I’m escaping London for the night and am re reading this on the train. My mate/hero Rob Auton wrote and illustrated it. Its bloody good like.

"Time Does Not Bring Relief..."

apoemaday:

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last…

One of the old faves. I quote from this in one of mine. Plagiarism.

Bukowski may have been a bastard, but he flippin knew what he was doing…

Out of the arm of one love

and into the arms of another

I have been saved from dying on the cross

by a lady who smokes pot

writes songs and stories

and is much kinder than the last,

much much kinder,

and the sex is just as good or better.

it isn’t pleasant to be put on the cross and left there,

it is much more pleasant to forget a love which didn’t

work

as all love

finally

doesn’t work …

it is much more pleasant to make love

along the shore in Del Mar

in room 42, and afterwards

sitting up in bed

drinking good wine, talking and touching

smoking

listening to the waves …

I have died too many times

believing and waiting, waiting

in a room

staring at a cracked ceiling

wating for the phone, a letter, a knock, a sound …

going wild inside

while she danced with strangers in nightclubs …

out of the arms of one love

and into the arms of another

it’s not pleasant to die on the cross,

it is much more pleasant to hear your name whispered in

the dark.

-Charles Bukowski

My VC sister has done it again. Hoping it will reach the man himself.

Nice one to Bang Said The Gun for asking me to headline with the legend that is Howard Marks and to the banging audience who listened so intently to my work. I drank a lot of gin and took my shirt off.
