Strange and Distant Sea

Your touch was lightning in the freezing rain

the main line plugged straight into a nerve

as the sky screamed overhead

and the storm crept slowly across the valley

I couldn’t tell if it was you or the storm

that swept me away to drown

but I went willingly into the darkness

lost to the world and searching for more

On paths away from the falling rain

out there across a strange and distant sea

the stars cast a different light

and sometimes in the spaces between them

I can just make out the way back to you

Finished reading my first Bukowski novel, Hollywood. I need to check out more of his books… Anyone have favorites of his?
