I Made A Mistake

Written by: Charles Bukowski | Biography
 | Quotes (11) |
 I reached up into the top of the closet
and took out a pair of blue panties
and showed them to her and
asked "are these yours?" 
and she looked and said,
"no, those belong to a dog.
" she left after that and I haven't seen her since.
she's not at her place.
I keep going there, leaving notes stuck into the door.
I go back and the notes are still there.
I take the Maltese cross cut it down from my car mirror, tie it to her doorknob with a shoelace, leave a book of poems.
when I go back the next night everything is still there.
I keep searching the streets for that blood-wine battleship she drives with a weak battery, and the doors hanging from broken hinges.
I drive around the streets an inch away from weeping, ashamed of my sentimentality and possible love.
a confused old man driving in the rain wondering where the good luck went.
