the time is perfect

for this one to make a guest appearance:

Bukowski liked crazy women

On days like these

When I feel brittle and paranoid and overwhelmed,

When my well-modulated voice strikes a brittle note,

When my feet forget how to dance and

My soul feels stunted and petulant.

 

On days like these

When I can’t even fake stable, or attractive,

I remind myself

That Bukowski would have really liked me.

(Joanne Hart, 2008)
