Charles Bukowski

Sway With Me by Charles Bukowski
sway with me, everything sad --
madmen in stone houses
without doors,
lepers steaming love and song
frogs trying to figure
the sky;
sway with me, sad things --
fingers split on a forge
old age like breakfast shell
used books, used people
used flowers, used love
I need you
I need you
I need you:
it has run away
like a horse or a dog,
dead or lost
or unforgiving.


  1. Speaking about Bukowski... Of course, you have seen Factotum? IMHO much, much better, than a Barfly with Rourke and Dunaway.

  2. Yes, it's not bad. Matt Dillon is pretty good as Chinaski.
