POEM: "Ledge Dark Somewhere"

Ledge Dark Somewhere
                                       I.M. Charles Bukowski

Maximum power is a river
it flows past wild rocks
something hits my ass   mon dieu

the Chauvet cave paintings
“celebrate the stupidity
of our endurance”   only wait

qu’est-ce que c’est   delinquencies
satisfactions have been reckoned
they look pretty damn small

consider the initiation of art
the Late Stone Age in France
goddamn there were rhinos

far back from the light
rockfall sealed the cave
careful   bear tracks   framed

si ça se peut   not my business
old wines stretch my brain
cat on the sofa   watermelons   summer
