Portions

"...so if I fall drunk in a four-dollar room: you messed up your history—let me dawdle in mine.

from Charles Bukowski's Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook

Love this from his "Women:A Novel".....

“Glendoline pulled up a chair and started talking. She could talk. If she was a sphinx she could have talked, if she was a stone she could have talked. I wondered when she’d get tired and leave. Even after I stopped listening it was like being battered with tiny ping pong balls.”

Man can I relate to that statement.
