maybe...
"you've got to burn
straight up and down
and then maybe sidewise
for a while
and have your guts
scrambled by a
bully
and the demonic
ladies,
you've got to run
along the edge of
madness
teetering,
you've got to starve
like a winter
alleycat,
you've go to live
with the imbecility
of at least a dozen
cities,
then maybe
maybe
maybe
you might know
where you are
for a tiny
blinking
moment."
— Charles Bukowski (Bone Palace Ballet: New Poems)

Is today an existential angst day? (I ask with love - this is an ongoing conversation I have with one of my close friends in DC. There are gen'l depression days and then there are existential angst days.) Love to you either way.

"starve like a winter alleycat" - amazing.

thanks sweetie! I hadn't been thinking about it as an existential angst kind of day, but maybe it was. I like the distinction from general depression
