They didn’t want to write — Charles Bukowski

they thought that writing had
something to do with
the politics of the
thing.

they were simply not
crazy enough
in the head
to sit down to a
typer
and let the words bang
out.

they didn’t want to
write.

they wanted to
succeed at
writing.

 

— Charles Bukowski. between races. from The Last Night of The Earth Poems.
