    Clearly Bukowski is writing from experience here, and rather nicely I think. There is so much pain in his work, so much that is personal that I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame. And we'll all burn in hell together. (Report)Reply

    next time take my left arm or a fifty
    but not my poems:
    I'm not Shakespeare
    but sometime simply
    there won't be any more, abstract or otherwise;
    there'll always be mony and whores and drunkards
    down to the last bomb,

    A very nice poem.
    Thank you poet.

    Once I wrote to Viggo Mortensen for a couple years. Multi-volume sets were burned- the only copies- as hearts and minds wandered lost in deserts without water, pleading with mirages- so I definitely feel for Charles and his whole whore situation. (Report)Reply

    I can't imagine how I will feel if someone stole my poetry booklet. I am happy to only imagine and not to experience it (Report)Reply

    from the heart and guts.the only poem i've ever given a 10 to on here.And the image of God crossing his legs and lamenting the lack of poetry, is one that will live with me and very apt. (Report)Reply

    Stealing poetry is the same as destroying it, it's as much a part of you as anything else. An great poem, brilliantly written. (Report)Reply
