Tom Waits and Bono read a couple of Bukowski poems. They're pretty inspirational, I thought you all might enjoy it.

"Be on the watch, the Gods will offer you chances, know them and take them. You can't beat death, but you can beat death in life. Sometimes the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. You are marvelous, and the gods wait to delight in you." - Charles Bukowski, The Laughing Heart

Remember when I first stumbled upon Charles Bukowski's poetry. At least I can understand and appreciate it whereas much else leaves me puzzled. Did he change the rules about poetry? Rhyme, meter, etc.

Thank you for this reading.

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.

No prob guys. These two poems and a lot of Bukowskis other works got me through a lot of stuff.
