. . . On my way home, I thought about Mr. Ludwig, a patient of mine. He was mystery. The old bird, he'd call himself, had a stroke. The other nurses and I thought him 'pleasantly confused'. Some days when he seemed lucid, Mr. Ludwig would speak to us, his mind--clear as sunday mornings. Other days, he'd sit in a corner alone .. humming. He'd hum what he called 'his song'. To me?.. it was a lament, a man's cry. Whether it was music, a song or a cry, I couldn't figure him out. I couldn't make out if they rhymed. Under his breathe, he'd hum. One day, as I fed him breakfast, Mr. Ludwig turned to me and clear as day he said, 'Sex is kicking death in the ass while singing', he paused, his eyes twinkled in sunlight piercing through the slants in the blinds. The other nurses and I, we, couldn't just figure him out nor the twinkle in his eyes. Until tonight, when I read 'Notes of a Dirty Old Man', 'Sex is kicking death in the ass while singing' by Charles Bukowski, page 166. That Mr. Ludwig .. I think he was singing. ________________________________ #vsco #quote #picoftheday #words #motivationmonday   #vscocam #instagood #quoteoftheday #igers #shortstory #vscorussia #vscoedit #instagramers   #instadaily #passionpassport #melancholy #dark #poem #welltravelled   #peoplescreatives #write #wordporn #wordsmith #poetcommunity #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #writer #writersofig #instaquote #writing .
