you said
"im going like a lamb to
the slaughter
but im as calm as a
summers day"
but i bet you didnt feel
so calm when they broke
down the door
and you jumped 
out of that window.

i even heard you fired 
a few shots back.

as far as i know jesus
didnt crucify a few people
on the way to the cross

gandhi didnt knife anyone 

van gogh shot himself.

hicks went up in a 
cloud of smoke.

krishnamurti lived till old
age and died of natural
causes

bukowski and carlin
and watts too

doing far less damage to
themselves and to 
others.

more than ever its like
we are stuck on repeat
killing each other and
blowing ourselves up 
over ideals and beliefs,
the few that have been
good have been organized
and become bad


and there is something i'd
like to say to 
all you homemakers,
you women in long
dresses, 
you business men in
suits who practice religious
capitalism.
to the whole world.

a martyr does not kill
and is killed.
a martyr does not hurt
anyone and is 
hurt.

and on a long enough
timeline no one
makes the grade.
the Egyptians loved the cat
were often entombed with it
instead of with the women 
and never the dog

but now
here
good people with
good eyes
are very few

yet fine cats
with great style
lounge about
in the alleys of
the universe

about
our argument tonight
whatever it was
about
and
no matter
how unhappy
it made us
feel

remember that
there is a
cat
somewhere
adjusting to the
space of itself 
with a delightful
grace

in other words
magic persists
without us
no matter what
we may try to do
to spoil it.


-Charles Bukowski
