These arrived at 5am...

In the early hours of not sleeping, these two bits of nonsense arrived:

If you were to multiply
The number of cats
Lost in Murakami novels
By the amount of women
Bukowski shags in his
The sum total
Would equal
The mistakes made
In my life

Literary Ambition
I have no literary ambitions
Beyond finishing
This Dan Fante novel
And heading to the pub
For some lager
Carling Black Label, probably
My friend for nigh-on 30 years
Although, back then
When you ordered
You used the suffix
Shared with Johnnie Walker
Whereas now
Four times the price it was back then
It's simply Carling.
