Hot

Rating: 3.2

she was hot, she was so hot
I didn't want anybody else to have her,
and if I didn't get home on time
she'd be gone, and I couldn't bear that-
I'd go mad...
it was foolish I know, childish,
but I was caught in it, I was caught.
I delivered all the mail
and then Henderson put me on the night pickup run
in an old army truck,

the damn thing began to heat halfway through the run

Yes, he was a 'purported' misogynist, for good reason.

What was in the damned note was the dred PROFANITY! So the Big Brother that keeps we poets that submit from using words like s.it, b.st..rd, and v.gi, a decided to delet it. A clear case of needless censorship. Hell-how did you guys find 150+ poems by this guy that DIDN'T have profanity? Print the whole poem or don't print it at all.

well it's not really a poem.. it's an excerpt from 'The Post Office' one of his books. But he writes his books the same way he writes his poetry, it's wonderful :)

I'm new to this site...I have always loved Bukowski. I wonder if he is popular with other women? He is such a purported (for good reason) mysogynist. But this poem, such a low rating. I like it. A lot. Like the ending of the Sopranos, ..just wanted to know....what was in the damned note!
