Charles in charge

Dear Charles,
Let go of my heart. It belongs to another. Alright, we’ll have a fling or two. But I promise you I won’t enjoy it.

Yours,
Tatya

Trapped 1
By Charles Bukowski

don’t undress my love
you might find a mannequin:
don’t undress the mannequin
you might find
my love.

she’s long ago
forgotten me.

she’s trying on a new
hat
and looks more the
coquette
than ever.

she is a
child
and a mannequin
and death.

I can’t hate
that.

she didn’t do
anything
unusual.

I only wanted her
to.

The Aliens

you may not believe it
but there are people
who go through life with
very little
friction or
distress.
they dress well, eat
well, sleep well.
they are contented with
their family
life.
they have moments of
grief
but all in all
they are undisturbed
and often feel
very good.
and when they die
it is an easy
death, usually in their
sleep.

you may not believe
it
but such people do
exist.

but I am not one of
them.
oh no, I am not one
of them,
I am not even near
to being
one of
them

but they are
there

and I am
here.

Oh Charles!

  1. Yup. He looks like a wolf even, thus successfully triggering my fantasy of a wolf companion. Dog ka bhi baap! Sauch tatya!
