I Say Please

Updated on August 19, 2010
Oil Painting By Charles Bukowski
Oil Painting By Charles Bukowski

Hey you I already yelled at you to stop grinding those damn teeth.

Now I suppose Ill lower my tone and tell you to simply exhale then breath.

And the time calls for us to once and for all stop this starring contest and finally blink

And after the burning of my patience I say to thee open up that mouth and..

Speak those secrets freely so you may instantly and lastly be able to think clearly.

Now to ask of you another request the stopping of your rolling eyes and the hateful gesturing

And to smile honestly towards what one may not fully comprehend entirely

But It will be eventually explained by this tongue of soaked guilt and said mystery

And then the neon black hand will pass the neon white number making way for I to say It is..

Time for you to give away your animosity In place of the tender sweet and loving generosity.

Set up and stop the raising of that beautiful voice to thou and speak clearer and with sincere dignity.

But be! I plea! Be! better than what you seem to see In that neon cream mirror of self destructive imagining

Now then to beg one last time of you with a whimper I say go to our flowers and water them carefully Afterwards give to I your eaten love In exchange for the self’s hellishly undigested neon green eternity.

      Time for you to give away your animosity In place of the tender sweet and loving generosity.

      I love this line, the whole poem is great, but this line just does something extra for me.
