November 21
--- by david lehman

Being an evil man
I'll burn you like a candle
and I'll burn you on both ends
that's my blues for the day, and
forget tomorrow
as Frank wrote, the past is a
future that came through
that's my haiku
of the day and here's to you
Charles Bukowski
the comment on your last book
of poetry you liked best was
"you jack-off motherfuck,
you're not fooling anybody,"
my motto of the day
