Post Reading Bukowski on the Waters of Amelia, Virginia
It was the tenth printing of the
first hardcover edition
of his 1992 book Septuagenarian
Stew: Stories & Poems.

I never had a hardcover Bukowski
before—all the others
have been paperback reprints.

I read it while dad motors the boat,
looking for brim
and for catfish and for
a way to get in the shade
without hitting the bank.

Holding the Black Sparrow covers
in my hands,
between my fingers,

I am suddenly
more conscious of

the way that the boat rocks
back and forth
from the waves
and my dad’s movement

from one side to the other.

It is as though I am of two minds: one
keeps to the books and looks for
some kind of good line.

The other focuses on the water
for the very same thing

in not too far off places.
