in the cockpit
call it love
stand it up in the failing light
put it in a dress
pray
sing
beg
cry
laugh
turn off the lights
turn on the radio
add trimmings:
butter
raw eggs
yesterday's newspaper
one new shoelace
then add
paprika
sugar
salt
pepper
phone your drunken aunt in Calexico;
call it love,
you skewer it good,
add
cabbage and applesauce,
then heat it from the left side,
then heat it from the right side,
put it in a box
give it away
leave it on a doorstep
vomiting as you go
into the hydrangea.

Bukowski is truly a national treasure. I keep finding poems I love... he wrote so damn many!
