Twenty dollars here
Twenty dollars there
Is this what it costs me
To build a career?
It’s enough to make
Someone like Buk
Have to choose
Between his booze and his 
Literature

  2. dont think it was much of a choice really for ol’ ‘kowski…i tend to muster up the strength (and the budget) to spend 20 on one submission per year. after that, its all liquor barn.
