    这其实查尔斯·布考斯基(Charles Bukowski,1920-1994 )的一首题为“写作”的诗歌。有些版本只有前面的9行。在苗炜那里看到了这个长的版本。又在网上查到,说这是布考斯基的“写作”诗的完整版。遂收录于此:

    Writing

    by Charles Bukowski

    often it is the only
    thing
    between you and
    impossibility.
    no drink,
    no woman's love,
    no wealth
    can
    match it.
    nothing can save
    you
    except
    writing.
    it keeps the walls
    from
    failing.
    the hordes from
    closing in.
    it blasts the
    darkness.
    writing is the
    ultimate
    psychiatrist,
    the kindliest
    god of all the
    gods.
    writing stalks
    death.
    it knows no
    quit.
    and writing
    laughs
    at itself,
    at pain.
    it is the last
    expectation,
    the last
    explanation.
    that's
    what it
    is.
