Velho safado! Bêbado envolto pelo ar sublime das noites de liberdade! Pulp elegante e genial...

Quero agradecer a mathdivision (click the link) que permitiu a essa leitura ter chegado até mim. Também quero agradecer a Skinned Teen, que a postou, embora eu não possa expor o link aqui, devido à natureza de meu blog...

É tão bom poder ouvir o poeta ...

Charles Bukowski - STYLE

Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art 
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, walking out of the bathroom
, naked, without seeing me.
