GIRLFRIENDS

the women of the past keep

phoning.

there was another yesterday

arrived from out of

state.

she wanted to see

me.

I told her

<<no.>>

I don’t want to see

them,

I won’t see them.

It would be awkward

gruesome and

useless.

I know some people who can

watch the same movie

more than

once.

not me.

once I know the

plot

once I know the

ending

whether it’s happy or

unhappy or

just plain

dumb,

then for me

that movie is

finished

forever

and that’s why

I refuse

to let any of my

old movies play

over and over again

for

years.

Charles Bukowski

in italiano su “Una notte niente male” (Guanda), raccolta di scritti postumi

il bello è che io penso esattamente lo stesso, sia delle “fidanzate” che dei film
