Love Is a Dog from Hell

And if you have the ability to love

love yourself first

but always be aware

of the possibility of

total defeat

whether the reason for

that defeat

seems right or wrong—

an early taste of death is not necessarily

a bad thing.

Charles Bukowski, ‘Love Is a Dog from Hell’.
