COURAGE

Folder: 
SLEEPY TIME POEMS

 

Bukowski called it courage

to get up
each & every morning

and face the same job;

the same bullshit

 

but the bed sores 

of Rip Van Winkle

achieved by

not getting up;

laying there 

like a lifeless lump

 

That leads me to believe

it’s as much

necessity as courage

 

ultimately

we’re damned if we do

and damned if we don’t
