Publisher Comments:

another comeback

climbing back up out of the ooze, out of
the thick black tar,
rising up again, a modern
Lazarus.
you're amazed at your good
fortune.
somehow you've had more
than your share of second
chances.
hell, accept it.
what you have, you have.
you walk and look in the bathroom
mirror
at an idiot's smile.
you know your luck.
some go down and never climb back up.
something is being kind to you.
you turn from the mirror and walk into the
world.
you find a chair, sit down, light a cigar.
back from a thousand wars
you look out from an open door into the silent
night.
Sibelius plays on the radio.
nothing has been lost or destroyed.
you blow smoke into the night,
tug at your right
ear.
baby, right now, you've got it
all.

Synopsis:

The fourth of five new books of unpublished poems from the late, great Charles Bukowski, America's most imitated and influential poet.

Synopsis:

learning the ropes

he was my guru.

he was a big man, bearded, self-assured.

he sat in one chair.

I sat in another.

we had been up together many days

and nights.

there had been an hour's heavy

silence.

then he leaned forward slightly

and whispered,

you don't have to worry about

worms when you die, Chinaski,

worms don't infest dead

bodies, it's a fairy tale.

that's good to know, I

said.

then we fell into another

hour's heavy

silence.

About the Author

Charles Bukowsk is one of America's best-known contemporary writers of poetry and prose, and, many would claim, its most influential and imitated poet. He was born in 1920 in Andernach, Germany, to an American soldier father and a German mother, and brought to the United States at the age of three. He was raised in Los Angeles and lived there for fifty years. He published his first story in 1944 when he was twenty-four and began writing poetry at the age of thirty-five. He died in San Pedro, California, on March 9, 1994, at the age of seventy-three, shortly after completing his last novel, Pulp.
