    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.

    (Alone With Everybody - Poem by Charles Bukowski.) **In the midst of a crowd, sometimes we feel alone. And tho’ close to others, still we can experience such aloneness. (Report) Reply

    Flesh searching for more than flesh.
    When you are done with searching for flesh you want something more. It could be a 'pristine environment', good friends and relatives or the spiritual. (Report) Reply

    Nobody ever find one.
    we are doomed to everlasting ambiguity of life.harmony is nothing but, mere illusion of humanity.
    We are living in a sort of eternal contrasts and perhaps it's a benison which is granted to humanity that enhance their beauty in relationships.

    Pessimism? Possibly. However, if you live in certain parts of the big cities, in certain sub-cultures, if you live by your own wits, this poem may not reflect pessimism but realism. Based on the experiences of our life, we all have expectations about life in the future. If you see the worst of the worst everyday spilling out on the streets, it would be intelligent to expect to see it spill out on the streets tomorrow. If you move to a higher tone neighborhood, you would probably see signs of the same poverty of the soul except kept under wraps better, kept wrapped in a pretty
    package too. The crawling in and out of beds would be spoken of in more elevated terms- -like exploring one's sexuality or dating.
