Who needs it?

see this poem?
it was
written without drinking
I don’t need to drink
to write.
I can write without
drinking.
my wife says I can.
I’m not drinking
and I’m writing.
see this poem?
it was
written without drinking.
who needs a drink now?

probably the reader.

poem by
Charles Bukowski
the man who “brought everybody down to earth,
even the angels.”
