One of my Favorite Poems by Bukowski

The Red Porsche<br><br><br>it feels good<br>to be driven about in a red <br>porsche<br>by a woman better -<br>read than I<br>am.<br>it feels good<br>to be driven about in a red<br>porsche<br>by a woman who can explain<br>things about<br>classical<br>music to<br>me.<br><br>it feels good<br>to be driven about in a red<br>porsche<br>by a woman who buys<br>things for my refrigerator<br>and my<br>kitchen:<br>cherries, plums, lettuce, celery,<br>green onions, brown onions,<br>eggs, muffins, long<br>chilis, brown sugar,<br>Italian seasoning, oregano white<br>wine vinegar, pompeian olive oil<br>and red<br>radishes.<br><br>I like being driven about<br>in a red porsche<br>while I smoke cigarettes in<br>gentle languor.<br><br>I am lucky. I’ve always been<br>lucky:<br>even when I was starving to death<br>the bands were playing for <br>me.<br>but the red porsche is very nice<br>and she is<br>too, and<br>I’ve learned to feel good when<br>I feel good.<br><br>it’s better to be driven around in a<br>red porsche<br>than to own<br>one. the luck of the fool is<br>inviolate.<br><br>Charles Bukowski
