“The Genius of the Crowd” by Charles Bukowski May 20, 2019

there is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
human being to supply any given army on any given day

and the best at murder are those who preach against it
and the best at hate are those who preach love
and the best at war finally are those who preach peace

those who preach god, need god
those who preach peace do not have peace
those who preach peace do not have love

beware the preachers
beware the knowers
beware those who are always reading books
beware those who either detest poverty
or are proud of it
beware those quick to praise
for they need praise in return
beware those who are quick to censor
they are afraid of what they do not know
beware those who seek constant crowds for
they are nothing alone
beware the average man the average woman
beware their love, their love is average
seeks average

but there is genius in their hatred
there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
to kill anybody
not wanting solitude
not understanding solitude
they will attempt to destroy anything
that differs from their own
not being able to create art
they will not understand art
they will consider their failure as creators
only as a failure of the world
not being able to love fully
they will believe your love incomplete
and then they will hate you
and their hatred will be perfect

like a shining diamond
like a knife
like a mountain
like a tiger
like hemlock

their finest art

I usually don’t cry on Mother’s Day …

It’s been … like, 40 years.

But I saw your picture. I mean,

really …

saw it

looked at …

examined …

searched for …

traces of me

who I could be

if you were still here.

12:30 am:

 

Sleep – wherefore art thou?

Away from the keyboard

and

far from the screen.

To the bedchamber I must trudge

to

hopefully

release today’s sorrows

and sink into Morpheus’ careless

embrace.

I want to eat all the snacks in my house,

but then I’ll be sad when they’re gone.

And then I’ll be too lazy and stuffed to

go get more.

I need minions.

 

 

The end.

AMSTERDAM

  
  

*Note: You know how something will pop into your head and you’ll have no idea where the hell it came from? Well, this morning I woke up with the last line in my head, and all I know about Amsterdam is what I’ve heard or read about the red light district and there’s pot, like, everywhere. So that’s where this came from.
