Pep talk from Chinaski

Because sometimes you need to be reminded.

this moment

it's a farce, the great actors, the great poets, the great
statesmen, the great painters, the great composers, the
great loves,
it's a farce, a farce, a farce,
history and the recording of it,
forget it, forget it.

you must begin all over again.
throw all that out.
all of them out.

you are alone with now.

look at your fingernails.
touch your nose.

begin.

the day flings itself upon
you.


-C. Bukowski
