Love Poem to Marina
my girl is 8
and that's old enough to know
better or worse or
anything
so I relax around her and
hear various astounding things
about sex
life in general and life in particular;
mostly it's very
easy
except I became a father when most men
become grandfathers, I am a very late starter
in everything,
and I stretch on the grass and sand
and she rips dandelions up
and places them in my hair
while I doze in the sea breeze.
I awaken
shake
say, "what the hell?"
and flowers fall over my eyes and my nose
and over my
lips.
I brush them away
and she sits above
giggling.

- Charles Bukowski
