there is a loneliness
in this world so great
that you can see it
in the slow movement of
the hands of a clock
people so tired
either by love or no love.
people just are
not good to each other
one on one.
the rich are not good to the rich
the poor are
not good to the poor.
we are afraid.
our educational system tells us
that we can all be
big-ass winners
it hasn’t told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.
or the terror of one person
aching in one place
unspoken to
watering a plant

– Charles Bukowski
