‘lynn’ by dennis jacobs

i want to give a big ol’ thank you to the lovely detroit couple dennis and christina jacobs of perfect laughter for posting about my graphic design the other day! in addition to posting inspirational stuff for us creative types, the jacobs are also totally rad screenprinters and artists. and to make them even cooler, the title ‘perfect laughter’ comes from a charles bukowski poem. swoon!

roll the dice by charles bukowski

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
otherwise, don’t even start.
if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
this could mean losing girlfriends,
wives, relatives, jobs and
maybe your mind.
go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
of how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.
if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like that.
you will be alone with the gods
and the nights will flame with
do it, do it, do it.
do it.
all the way
all the way.
you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter,
its the only good fight
there is.
