Andries Bezuidenhout. Tom Waits lees Charles Bukowski

Dis hier, op YouTube. ʼn Bietjie soos “Repos ailleurs”, net anders. Dalk baie anders. Die gedig se titel is “Nirvana”.

Bukowski se raad aan jong digters:  “He should realize that if he writes something and it bores him it’s going to bore many other people also. There is nothing wrong with a poetry that is entertaining and easy to understand. Genius could be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way. He should stay the hell out of writing classes and find out what’s happening around the corner. And bad luck for the young poet would be a rich father, an early marriage, an early success or the ability to do anything well.” ʼn Bietjie soos Rilke se raad, net anders. Sommer baie anders.

Dankie aan Plasticboer, wat die Waits-link gister op Facebook gesit het.

    In Afrikaans is dit gewoonlik ‘n geval van “what’s happening around the corner” van die sonnestelsel! 😉
