Today’s Poem: A Radio With Guts by Charles Bukowski

it was on the 2nd floor on Coronado Street
I used to get drunk
and throw the radio through the window
while it was playing, and, of course,
it would break the glass in the window
and the radio would sit there on the roof
still playing
and I’d tell my woman,
“Ah, what a marvelous radio!”
the next morning I’d take the window
off the hinges
and carry it down the street
to the glass man
who would put in another pane.
I kept throwing that radio through the window
each time I got drunk
and it would sit there on the roof
still playing-
a magic radio
a radio with guts,
and each morning I’d take the window
back to the glass man.
I don’t remember how it ended exactly
though I do remember
we finally moved out.
there was a woman downstairs who worked in
the garden in her bathing suit,
she really dug with that trowel
and she put her behind up in the air
and I used to sit in the window
and watch the sun shine all over that thing
while the music played.

Love Makes You Stupid, Really

Adelphi, Maryland – Researchers at the University of Maryland have confirmed what folk wisdom has known for years — love makes you stupid. In a twelve-month randomized study, one hundred volunteer students who self-identified as in the early stages of love were compared with one hundred control subjects who defined themselves as “just dating” or “between relationships.” The volunteers, ages 18-22, were given standard IQ tests over a twelve month period. Subjects in the “in-love” group scored 10-25 points lower early in the testing period. Their test scored improved as their relationships deteriorated over the twelve-month period. “We did find a statistically significant difference between male and female volunteers. Males were far stupider than females. Some were unable to identify their next of kin,” said Dr. Mark Conrad, who conducted the research.

Ask The Biologist: “Color Blindness Is Affecting My Love Life”

Dear Mr. Biologist,

I am reasonably good-looking, healthy, 24 year-old guy with a decent job. But I have a problem. I am color blind. My friends have tried to help me pick clothes and so on, but no matter what, I end up looking like I just blew in from Hicksville. It is seriously affecting my ability to find dates. Women look at me like I was raised by wolves. Any suggestions?

–Kinda Blind

Dear Kinda,

Your problem is fairly common. Biologically speaking, there is a good reason for your color blindness. Much of human ancestry lived in caves at some point, but your relatives were some of the last to leave. Color perception doesn’t help much in cave life. Your ancestors were successful, because they passed their genes on to you. Cave dwellers also used wolves as baby sitters and wolves are as color blind as they come. A wolf can’t tell pink from purple or peuce. Women know this instinctively. When it comes to finding potential mates, the trick is to find someone who is on your extended family tree, but far enough away to avoid making the Hicksville problem even worse. Look for women who have translucent skin, poor eyesight and live in basement apartments with large, angry dogs. Happy hunting.
