Yes, that is a good one aint it.

Little known fact ; Originally instead of "heart" it was "butt" but the publisher change, the world wasn't ready for that yet.

Read it again with the "Butt". Genius!!!!

Roll The Dice ~ Bukowski

if you're going to try,
go all the way.

otherwise, don't even start.

if you're going to try,
go all the way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.

go all the way.

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
mockery,isolation.
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance,
of how much you really want to
do it.

and you'll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you're going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like that.

you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
fire.

do it, do it, do it.
do it.

all the way
all the way.

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter,
its the only good fight
there is.

"Show me a man who lives alone and has a perpetually clean kitchen, and 8 times out of 9 I'll show you a man with detestable spiritual qualities."

with an Apple Macintosh
you can't run Radio Shack programs
in its disc drive.
nor can a Commodore 64
drive read a file
you have created on an
IBM Personal Computer.
both Kaypro and Osborne computers use
the CP/M operating system
but can't read each other's
handwriting
for they format (write
on) discs in different
ways.
the Tandy 2000 runs MS-DOS but
can't use most programs produced for
the IBM Personal Computer
unless certain
bits and bytes are
altered
but the wind still blows over
Savannah
and in the Spring
the turkey buzzard struts and
flounces before his
hens.

Charles Bukowski

@Tabish,
Simplest way of putting it, refers to writers of the beat generation, they went against conventional writing and consciousness, anti-traditionalisma, anti-conformity. It's more complicated than that; the above is just a basic.

Beat writers included Bukowski, Corso, Di Prima, Waldman, Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti along Burroughs and Kerouac
