no w.in

This is Charles Bukowski’s “No Win”

to live in a jungle

where each face is a face of

horror,

where each voice grates,

where bodies walk

without grace,

where only the communion

is between the dead and

the dead.

to live in a place

where empty faces

and common bodies

win

beauty contests.

to live in a place

where being alone

is always better than being

with someone.

to live a lifetime

with just your

fingernails

more real than

the multitudes,

to roll a 7 in hell

with nothing in the

pot,

that’s what this life

is.
