“Kerouac was a writer. That is he wrote. The difference being a bull fighter who fights a bull is different than a bull-shitter who makes passes with no bull there.”
— William S. Borroughs, “The Source: The Story of the Beats and the Beat Generation.”

The Ghost of Tom Joad

roll the dice

Charles Bukowski

American Poet and Author,

FBI File # 140-35907,

Born August 16, 1920 - Died March 9, 1994

roll the dice


if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try, go all the
way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,
isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like
that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
there is.
