Bukowski is discouraged
for not having
his poems translated into more
than 6 or 7 languages.
He’s at a bar,
drinking and listening
to some madman talk
about Camus.
I stopped drinking
4 years ago.
I’m not at the bar,
just sitting on my bed
writing this poem,
discouraged if I
don’t get published at all.
