    Hoping you'll be able to help me.
    My friends favourite quote is we are all searching for someone whose demons plays well with ours. and I have not been able to find if this is from a Bukowski book or poem. Would anyone be able to help me?

    Many thanks! !

    You show some promise, but the archaic language lets you down. Try to read some good contemporary poets and expand your thoughts without the restriction of form.

    He's the type of man, after the meal's ate, the children are to bed, you bring out a gallon of whiskey, and drink till sun-up, and hope to God, you've absorbed enough of that night from him to last a lifetime! !

    I grow to believe that a perfection leads to nowhere. Sometimes you must surrender. His imperfection is my shelter

    His writting has such a swagger to it.

  • Swagger Mcjagger (1/9/2013 8:43:00 AM)

    I like how he writes poems

    As a poet, as a writer, as a human being, I have to confess that Charles Bukowski has been a BIG influence on me. If he never existed, I'd probably be completely lost (or maybe I'd BE Charles Bukowski, who knows... and who cares) . Some people have Jesus, some people have John Lennon, I have Charles Bukowski.

Best Poem of Charles Bukowski

A Smile To Remember

we had goldfish and they circled around and around

understand what was attacking him from within.

wanting to be happy, beaten two or three times a
week, telling me to be happy: 'Henry, ...
