There is a Loneliness

handmade greeting card, collage art

there is a loneliness in this world so great

that you can see it in the slow movement of

the hands of a clock.

·

people so tired

mutilated

either by love or no love.

·

people just are not good to each other

one on one.

·

the rich are not good to the rich

the poor are not good to the poor.

·

we are afraid.

·

our educational system tells us

that we can all be 

big-ass winners.

·

it hasn’t told us

about the gutters

or the suicides.

·

or the terror of one person

aching in one place

alone

·

untouched

unspoken to

·

watering a plant.

Charles Bukowski, Love is a Dog from Hell
