Bukowski 1

tonight I wonder where
my Bukowski went,
looking tirelessly under
laundry, plates, sheets,
bottles, and more
scholastic books.
I pause at an anthology
American Modern
Flipping through the
pages until confirming
Bukowski is absent
and Tom Waits is
silently looking out
a dark window at
pigeons eating
out of children's palms.
so quiet.
Would swear
he never
