Reading

I got really high
Last night,
And I stayed up
Reading Bukowski
And listening to Cash.

Although,
I don’t know anyone else
Who stayed up
Reading Bukowski
Or listening to Cash

Not when everyone
Else that I know
Spends every hour
In the glow of their phone,
Tweeting and
Snapping and
Watching porn.

But I did.

I got really high,
Last night,
And I stayed up
Reading Bukowski
And listening to Cash,
And it was alright.
