A little Bukowski for Your Morning

about the PEN conference

take a writer away from his typewriter
and all you have left
is
the sickness
which started him
typing
in the
beginning.

- Charles Bukowski

Bukowski is one of my favorites, but you have to read him in small doses or it triggers depression.

ps - I wonder how long it will be before this poem is published with a footnote to explain what a "typewriter" is?
