I took my girlfriend to your last poetry reading,
she said.
yes, yes? I asked.
she's young and pretty, she said.
and? I asked.
she hated your
guts.

Thanks for that then. Yeah, it's a good poem, all right. Bukowski always has a wry humour and savage outlook, that's why you have to love him.

I've noticed this happens a lot on this site, the work isn't finished. I like this one so much I signed up to post the entire thing. 'I took my girlfriend to your last poetry reading, she said. yes, yes? I asked. she's young and pretty, she said. and? I asked. she hated your guts. then she stretched out on the couch and pulled off her boots. I don't have very good legs, she said. all right, I thought, I don't have very good poetry; she doesn't have very good legs. scramble two.'
