Charles Bukowski: Style
"style is the answer to everything.
a fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
to do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
to do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art
bullfighting can be an art
boxing can be an art
loving can be an art
opening a can of sardines can be an art
not many have style
not many can keep style
i have seen dogs with more style than men,
a though not many dogs have style.
cats have it with abundance.
when Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
i have met men in jail with style.
i have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me."
