Well, yes, this is bitter poem





Are so many of the people that I know
about the
same?

I would have to judge that they
are.

Like sometimes they are in
trouble
and
sometimes
I help them
out

and usually
what I do
saves them
(at least, for a
time)
from whatever crisis
they were
in

so then I
forget about
that
and
go about
other
things

but they
remember
and reward
me

usually with a
book-length
manuscript-

a novel or a mass of
poesy

informing me
that
they have
submitted
same
to my
editor-
publisher

then they sit back
and
wait

leaving the guilt on
my side.

Charles Bukowski
