blue hands, no, your hands are not tiny
they are small, and the fountain is in France

    ” I loved you
    like a man loves a woman he never touches, only
    writes to, keeps little photographs of.... CLASSIC

    always amazing
    total honesty that is tough to find, even in poetry: if I had met you I would probably have been unfair to you or you to me. (Report) Reply

    love you like a man loves a woman he never touches only wites to or keeps little photographs of.
    moving line of this inspirational poem. it showes essence of true love which is totally beyond ordinary sorts.
    far from any lust and physical charms and apart from transitory and temporary loves.

    A poem that is full of hidden truths and innuendos. Strictly Bukowski. Compelling. (Report) Reply

    beautiful...through Buk's tough exterior, his romantic heart shines through. (Report) Reply

    An extraordinary poem.. I couldn't even guess at all that it would end like that.. Bewildered, shocked, and still somehow, I am mildly amused.. (Report) Reply

    Honestly, there is brilliance in this man's mind....I read just one of his works and I haven't been able to conqure the almost irresistible urge to read more of Bukowski's work...Genius! And this poem is another wonderful piece from a great mind (Report) Reply

    This is depressing, not the Bukowski I'm accustomed to - and so well written. I wonder which of his (many) books it's from. It confirms my hope to read more of his work, but I hope some of it is more cheerful. He was a man of many, many words. (Report) Reply

    So powerful, so incredibly powerful. It's the kind of raw beauty that is pure Bukowski. Brilliant darkness. (Report) Reply

    The form is as obscure as beat can be - but it is not the package that makes it art, it is the content.

    I like it. It is not the be all or end all of anything. It rings of truth. Truth as voiced from a selfish man, from a cynic's perch where touch is but a wish.

    I do enjoy his voice. I am certain I would despise the man.
