Genius

Charles Bukowski used to be a favorite of the nonconformists. Today almost everybody is conformed, and so it's not surprising that Bukowski's poems are not very popular anymore. Anyway, I still love this one, titled "I Met A Genius":

today
about 6 years old,
he sat beside me
and as the train 
ran down along the coast
we came to the ocean
and then he looked at me
and said,
it's not pretty. 
Charles Bukowski
