The A-Gleam Lighting Co.
(adapted from Bukowski, Charles. “Making Do” Slouching Towards Nirvana. New York: Harper Collins, 2006)
Once on this ball busting job
I asked the worker next to me
How do we know
We haven’t died and gone to hell?
He didn’t reply.
He thought I was crazy to imagine
we might have died and gone to hell
The foreman walked up behind me:
“Chinaski, what are you looking around for?”
“I want to know,
where I am, where I am.”
“You’re at the A-Gleam Lighting Company”
