A Challenge to the Dark

PARIS ANGEL by Philip Sweeck

PARIS ANGEL by Philip Sweeck

A Challenge to the Dark by Charles Bukowski

shot in the eye

shot in the brain

shot is the ass

shot like a flower in the dance

 

amazing how death wins hands down

amazing how much credence is given to idiot forms of life

 

amazing how laughter has been drowned out

amazing how viciousness is such a constant

 

I must soon declare my own war on their war

I must hold my last piece of ground

I must protect the small space I have made that has allowed me life

 

my life not their death

my death not their death...
