A Great Man, A Great Poem Pt. 2

Charles Bukowski on being alone:

oh, yes

there are worse things than
being alone
but it often takes decades
to realize this
and most often
when you do
it’s too late
and there’s nothing worse
than
too late

Some people have a city instead of a life.

How’s that for an opening line? It pulled me right in. Guess what? It gets even better. This is from FULL OF IT – The Birth, Death, and Life of an Underground Newspaper the new novel from friend and writer extraordinaire Tim Hall. Tim is fresh off his appearance at the Omaha Lit Fest. His new book is a good ride. Take it.
