THIS Video of Tom Waits reading a Charles Bukowski Poem is ONE of The Best Things You’ll See this Year!


Once in a while we stumble upon something, a mix of emotions and presence that create a powerful fusion. A perfect moment of honesty and soul is captured.

Pieces like this are rare. You may never see them on the TV or hear people talking about them. But, if you are lucky enough to stumble upon them, you have the privilege to witness the coincidental alchemy of life.

Here is a piece of this kind. A video of Tom Waits reading a Charles Bukowski poem. It’s honest, and deep. It’s pure.


The Laughing Heart

“Your life is your life

don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.

Be on the watch.

There are ways out.

There is a light somewhere.

It may not be much light but

it beats the darkness.

Be on the watch.

The gods will offer you chances.

Know them.

Take them.

You can’t beat death but

you can beat death in life, sometimes.

And the more often you learn to do it,

the more light there will be.

Your life is your life.

Know it while you have it.

You are marvelous

the gods wait to delight

in you.”

by Charles Bukowski
