    Astounding. Cuts right to the core. No surplus in Bukowski's work. Just what matters. The essential. I love it so much. (Report) Reply

    flesh searches for more than flesh.

    there's no chance at all:
    we are all trapped by a singular fate.

    nobody ever finds..
    the one

    This is amazing and beautifully written

    A poem filled with pessimism
    but also filled with truth.
    Different, powerful and moving.

    A keen observor of life, Bukowski gives voice to the human heart without silencing the mind. His unsentimental relationship with the truth created a body of poetry that stands the test of time. (Report) Reply

    nobody ever finds
    the one.

    the city dumps fill
    the junkyards fill
    the madhouses fill
    the hospitals fill
    the graveyards fill
    Great poem.

    the flesh covers the bone
