I want to share a springtimey Charles Bukowski poem with you.
See you at a show?
who in the hell is Tom Jones?
I was shacked with a 24-year-old girl from New York City for
two weeks—about the time of the garbage strike out there, and
one night my 34-year-old woman arrived and she said, "I want to see
my rival." she did and then she said, "o, you're a cute little thing!"
next I knew there was a screech of wildcats— such screaming and scratch-
ing, wounded animal moans, blood and piss...

I was drunk and in my shorts. I tried to
 separate them and fell,
wrenched my knee. then they were through the screen door and down the walk
and out in the street.
squad cars full of cops arrived. a police heli-copter circled overhead.
I stood in the bathroom and grinned in the mirror. it's not often at the age
of 55 that such splendid things occur. better than the Watts riots.
the 34-year-old came back in. she had pissed all over her-self and her clothing
was torn and she was followed by 2 cops who wanted to know why.
pulling up my shorts
I tried to explain.
