The Crunch

Del libro Love is a Dog from hell (1977), aqui este poema “The Crunch”, interpretado por Bono en el Documental de Charles Bukowski “Born into This” (2004).Este poema yuxtapone la desilusión de Bukowski con el mundo, con la convicción de que debemos encontrar un mejor camino.

The Crunch, original of Charles Bukowski.
Read by Bono

Too much
too little
too fat
too thin
or nobody.
Strangers with faces like
the backs of thumb tacks
Armies running through
streets of blood
waving wine bottles
bayoneting and fucking virgins.

Or an old guy in a cheap room
with a photograph of M. Monroe.
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, mutilated
either by love or by 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.

Our educational system tells us
that we can all be
big-ass winners

It hasn’t told us
about the gutters
or the suicides.
or the terror of one person
aching in one place alone
The beads will swing
the clouds will cloud
and the killer will behead the child
like taking a bite out of an ice cream cone.

Too much
too little
too fat
too thin
or nobody

More haters than lovers.
people are not good to each other.
perhaps if they were
our deaths would not be so sad.
meanwhile I look at young girls stems
Flowers of chance.
there must be a way.
Surely there must be a way that we have not yet
though of.
who put this brain inside of me?
It cries
it demands
it says that there is a chance.
it will not say
