BORN INTO THIS? by Jason Fisk

Born into this? Yeah,
I watched the documentary.
I didn't mind Bukowski's antics
until he was sitting there on the couch
with his girlfriend.

He got mad at her
and the spat escalated into
a drunken argument.

The next thing I know
Bukowski's sitting there,
sideways on the couch,
in his bathrobe
kicking his

Like a spoiled child
getting pissed
at someone
and kicking them.

Not a drop of his drink
spilled as he
scooted himself across
the couch
and relentlessly kicked
the love of his life.

Jason Fisk lives in Chicagoland with his wife, daughter, and two dogs. He tries to find time to write between changing diapers and cleaning up poop. He is currently teaching English to students who would rather read graphic novels than learn how to write a proper sentence. You can visit his website at
