Carver on Bukowski

Words escape me

Not writer’s block really


A total blank when

trying to find



I am studying the

works of Raymond Carver

He writes his life as do I

however, perhaps I haven’t

had the inspirational struggles

that led him to pour his

soul onto paper


Today’s poem is one he

wrote of a night with


Oh to have the

Brilliance of these two

the ability to tell their


to make others feel

their lives…

their souls…


Bukowski says you must

have loved to be able to

write poetry


So …


I keep searching…

I keep hoping…

the right words

will find me


Will there then be love?
