My favorite passage from Raise High got stuck in my head, so my interpretation is here:
And the only other thing of worth i did today was to have a few slices at my favorite pizza joint, Tony’s in Ventura:
Simply the best. Thank you Tony!!
And i’ll leave you with a short Bukowski:
“your poems about the girls will still be around
50 years from now when the girls are all gone,”
my editor phones me.
the girls appear to be gone
I know what you mean
but give me one truly alive woman
walking across the floor toward me
and you can have all the poems
the good ones
the bad ones
or any that i might write
after this one.
I know what you mean.
do you know what i mean?
