16-bit Intel 8088 chip by Charles Bulkowski


16-bit Intel 8088 chip

with an Apple Macintosh
you can't run Radio Shack programs
in its disc drive.
nor can a Commodore 64
drive read a file
you have created on an
IBM Personal Computer.
both Kaypro and Osborne computers use
the CP/M operating system
but can't read each other's
handwriting
for they format (write
on) discs in different
ways.
the Tandy 2000 runs MS-DOS but
can't use most programs produced for
the IBM Personal Computer
unless certain
bits and bytes are
altered
but the wind still blows over
Savannah
and in the Spring
the turkey buzzard struts and
flounces before his
hens.

  23. I LOVE Bukowski. Bluebird was the first work of his that I ever read and I was just blown away! It sparked a love affair.

    If ytou haven't heard his live poetry readings yet, I suggest you take a look. There is a fantastic live album called Hostage, it was the last poetry reading he ever did, I think.

    Hey, can I suggest posting some Arthur Rimbaud and Stephen Crane too? That would be great, thanks!

  24. I've read a couple of Bukowski's books but never any of his poetry. This was quite unique.
