In Memoriam

1813 - 1883


listening to Wagner

as outside in the dark the wind blows, a cold rain the

trees wave and shake lights go

off and on the walls creak and the cats run under the

bed...


Wagner battles the agonies, he's emotional but

solid, he's the supreme fighter, a giant in the world of

pygmies, he takes it straight on through, he breaks

barriers

an

astonishing FORCE of sound as


everything here shales

shivers

bends

blasts

in fierce gamble


yes, Wagner and the storm intermix with the wine as

nights like this run up my wrists and up into my head and

back down into the

gut


some men never

die

and some men never

live


but we're all alive

tonight.


Charles Bukowski
