"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...
Charles Bukowski (Love Is a Dog from Hell: Poems, 1974-1977)
Can't Stand This Love, Goodbye
