In Truth

A man is rich in proportion to the number of things
which he can afford to let alone.

I hate giving titles, because then everybody who reads thinks that's what the poem/song/story/picture is all about. like that's the only thing it can be about.

But I have to admit, the roman numerals are getting ridiculous.

I am almost finished reading Magical Thinking, and I am definitely a fan. I've also started reading Run with the Hunted, and I'm actually ashamed and embarassed it's taken me this long to read more than a handful of random poetry by Bukowski. I'm in love. He writes and thinks the same crazy way I do, it seems.

I hope everyone is going to vote Tuesday!!! I have a dreaded 10am-11pm shift at work, but I will make time. I wasn't registered for the last election because I thought one vote, my small vote, really didn't matter, that there was no way Kerry would lose to Bush. Hah! I learned my lesson.


black and white
wrong and right
if it isn't broken
don't try to fix it
two sides to
every story
now don't say
you're sorry
if you don't agree
it's okay to
argue with me
because the choice
is never clear
the lines are
always smeared
opposites attract
were you never
taught that?
where one ends
who can tell
where the other
begins but
in the end
everybody wins
instead of
agreeing to disagree
lets open our eyes
consider the other side
find each other
in the middle
where black
meets white
and wrong
equals right
