Roll The Dice

I happened upon a fine piece of film work today. Created by Willem Martinot, this three minute Bukowski poem - Roll The Dice - really is All That. If you don't fall in love with it, your soul has gone way past the point of no return:

Voiced by Tom O'Bedlam, this is one of my favourite pieces from Bukowski and is generally filed under One Of Those Things I Wish I Had Written. If my memory serves me correctly, I think it comes from the What Matters Most Is How Well You Walk Through the Fire collection, in which there is much other work to fall head over heels in love with.
