    Mr. Bukowski appears to handle that thin line between insanity and genius quite well. Few do it as well, I think. (Report) Reply

    GTFO off this page with your hooker talk! You clearly have some kind of an attention problem. And do you really want to do that to a dead guy? ! Wacko floozy pundit.

    So brilliantly insightful with so few words. Of the many thousands of works done, nothing is really new. Someone before us all has felt the same way, or thought the same way- we just relate it in different verse. (Report) Reply
