Creativity by Charles Bukowski

you know, I’ve either had a family, a job, 
something has always been in the 
way 
but now 
I’ve sold my house, I’ve found this 
place, a large studio, you should see the space and 
the light. for the first time in my life I’m going to have
a place and the time to 
create.” 

no baby, if you’re going to create 
you’re going to create whether you work 
16 hours a day in a coal mine 
or 
you’re going to create in a small room with 3 children 
while you’re on 
welfare, 
you’re going to create with part of your mind and your 
body blown 
away, 
you’re going to create blind 
crippled, 
demented, 
you’re going to create with a cat crawling up your 
back while 
the whole city trembles in earthquake, bombardment, 
flood and fire. 

baby, air and light and time and space 
have nothing to do with it 
and don’t create anything 
except maybe a longer life to find 
new excuses 
for.
