it was amazing

Unlike many of his devotees, I cannot say that I would like to sit and have a drink with Charles Bukowski. I think it is safe to say that from what I know of the man, it would be an unpleasant experience at best for the both of us. Some people, however troubled or misanthropic (good word choice, yeah?) they may have been in life cannot help themselves...they write beautifully. And Charles Bukowski wrote so damn beautifully. His later poems are by far my favorite, the youthful anger tempered with elderly wisdom and a little forgiveness for the human race, and it was this collection, one of many published posthumously, that first grabbed me and would not let go.

Dan I had no idea you were a Bukowski fan. We have more to talk about now.
