don’t try (it will find it’s way to you)

the old big time finally weakened sent in for the 1982-83 copy of WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA. it came in a huge box, two volumes. I pulled them out and Linda opened one to 'Bukowski'. "Jesus," she said, "you've only listed about one-sixth of your works. these other guys run on and on..." I told her, "the editors also asked for some comment upon life, some philosophy." "what's yours?" "didn't they put it in?" I asked. "it's at the end," she said, "it says: 'don't try'." "right," I answered, "what's good on TV tonight?" Charles Bukowski
