Hank is back.

It actually felt very good
seeing Matt Dillon
doing his thing in 'Factotum'.

Being gently pulled through
times and tides in this
slow and smart movie,
(the only period movie I have ever seen
that is actually not a period movie),

I decided to go back to Bukowski's poems,
and have a look at them in a more relaxed
way, being maybe less tensed myself than I was
with sixteen.

And I found this incredibly good poem.
He obviously conceived it back in the mid eighties,
but sadly and luckily enough it still holds true.

The website americanpoem.com uses
the same beloved font, by the way.

Hank is back.
