"look carefully at the slope" from jackill Contract pics
Picture: look carefully at the slope (Contract pics)

back to the machine gun
I awaken about noon and go out to get the mail
in my old torn bathrobe.
I'm hung over
hair down in my eyes
barefoot
gingerly walking on the small sharp rocks
in my path
still afraid of pain behind my four-day beard.

the young housewife next door shakes a rug
out of her window and sees me:
"hello, Hank!"

god damn! it's almost like being shot in the ass
with a .22

"hello," I say
gathering up my Visa card bill
I mince back again over the small sharp rocks
thinking, maybe I'd better write something tonight,
they all seem to be closing in.

Bukowski wasn't writing about our Gun, but I feel his pain.

There is enough space to park one car at 100 167, just on the edge of a wood around a sharp u-bend. Proceed north for 100m before turning NE up a gentle slope, although the terrain is treacherous ...
