bukowski fish

Trapped
(Charles Bukowski)


don't undress my love
you might find a mannequin:
don't undress the mannequin
you might find
my love.
she's long ago
forgotten me.
she's trying on a new
hat
and looks more the
coquette
than ever.
she is a
child
and a mannequin
and death.
I can't hate
that.
she didn't do
anything
unusual.
I only wanted her
to.

3 little fish:

I like that. I can almost hear music when I read it. That should definitely be a song.
