    what's up with the half poems and false one liners on here?

    'Working Out':

    Van Gogh cut off his ear
    gave it to a
    prostitute
    who flung it away in
    extreme
    disgust.
    Van, whores don't want
    ears
    they want
    money.
    I guess that's why you were
    such a great
    painter: you
    didn't understand
    much
    else. (Report) Reply

    Simplistic...I like how Bukowski writes, he some how manages to tell a story even if its just 2 sentences long. (Report) Reply
