    Why does Charles Bukowski write such a poem to be remembered by? Springs to mind when reading this excellent account of his fading life in his vivid view. Just a thought from ever pondering why? Tai (Report) Reply

    And yes, at the moment, I'm doing a little tiny bit of drinking. Enough for typos or grammatical errors? ? Not even... (Report) Reply

    I believe if youre famous enough- and enough people believe you are alive, you can come back to life..but only to appear at shopping mall openings/book signings. Sadly - bukowski can't continue his work post mortum(but I will see him at that mall opening in SOHO) . (Report) Reply

    Lol! Jodilee Duke... I don't think Bukowski is going to read your comment any time soon. :) Sadly, the greatest American poet of the latter part of the 20th century, Charles Bukowski, died in 1994. (Report) Reply
