roadworks ahead

To whom it may concern /
to everybody involved:

WAR IS OVER – AND AN END OF ALL THOSE SATURDAYS IN SIGHT.

(I’ll be leaving this institution coming Tuesday and resume and commence roadworks on issue Nummer two of «BUK100»)

THANKS FOR EVERYBODY’S PATIENCE.

(…)
all those Saturday
afternoons
as a boy
are gone
and I look
around this room
and it looks at me
through
the window panes,
it hangs
from the doornob,
and a gold
paperweight
of an owl
looks at me
who has had
too many
Saturday
afternoons.

From: Charles Bukowski
«drink and wait» (1980)
