I see you drinking at a fountain with tiny
blue hands, no, your hands are not tiny
they are small, and the fountain is in France

    Lamont. If you are under-read, keep quiet and people would think you are more stupid than you are now. At least do some research before you post dumb comment on a man who was written more poetry than you've spouted intelligent words. And it goes for all you other under-read people too. (Report) Reply

    What is wrong with some of you people? Nice but too long? Thats the most ridiculous thing I've ever encountered. Its not nice, its beautiful, raw and real and honest. To read this and say 'nice poem but too long' I can't even comprehend. And who cares about whats written on bathroom walls? Bukowski probably would have writen on bathroom walls buts its could never just be the writing on bathroom walls. Thats not what this is, its poetry and incredible poetry. How come this is a poem? Why would you try to minimise what poetry is by giving it boundaries? Whats Happening Here? ! (Report) Reply

    i find the stuff written on bathroom stalls entertaning. especially when others comment back. i never do, just laugh. i suppose this would resemble something like it, though not as lengthy. i liked it. (Report) Reply

    well, yes, but how come this is a poem? it
    is something scribbled on the back of an
    unposted postcard and there are millions
    of those suppose i said i don't feel your pain?
    this sort of thing could maybe be written on
    the back of public lavatoty doors where tra-
    ditionaL poetry readers don't go in search of new
    apercus and surprise some poor guy who thinks
    like that but has never picked up a poetry book
    in his

    Nothing short of one of the greatest pieces of poetry written. (Report) Reply

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    This is a nice poem, but it is too long.
