My favourite poem

Girl In A Miniskirt Reading The Bible Outside My Window – Charles Bukowski

I am eating a
church is over at the Russian Orthadox to the

she is dark
of Eastern descent,
large brown eyes look up from the Bible
then down.

a small red and black
Bible, and as she reads
her legs keep moving, moving,
she is doing a slow rythmic dance
reading the Bible. . .

long gold earrings;
2 gold bracelets on each arm,
and it's a mini-suit, I suppose,
the cloth hugs her body,
the lightest of tans is that cloth,
she twists this way and that,
long yellow legs warm in the sun. . .

there is no escaping her being
there is no desire to. . .

my radio is playing symphonic music
that she cannot hear
but her movements coincide exactly
to the rythms of the
symphony. . .

she is dark, she is dark
she is reading about God.

I am God.

First blood

Here's what's come thru on Emule since I got it up n' runnin'.
Need to get onto Soulseek though for more obscurities...

The Sopranos Series 6 Episodes1 & 2
Broken Flowers

Santana & Mahavishnu Orchestra - Live In Chicago 1973
Chet Baker & Art Pepper - The Route
Cut Copy - Bright Like Neon Love
DJ Dangermouse - The GreyAlbum
Color Strip - Jimmy Edgar
Broken Flowers soundtrack
Yusef Lateef - The Blue Yusef Lateef

By the way, we don't have the right programs installed to play any of this shit yet... So it could all be LA gay boys entering each other (what we got when my girlfriend tried to download the Hung Up video last year... Hilarious.)
She's got more files through than me, though she's been searching for less.
Who'd have thought James Blunt and Green Day were easier to find than Paris Soul by Ben & The Platano Group (1971)? I mean, really, who?
