selection is half the
road to
victory;
the other half is
indifference to
yourself.

on the one hand
you can say
anything;
on the other
you don’t
have
to.

I’ve managed
both.

the problems
are
yours.

I want to bring all of Bukowski's poems online and make then freely available. This means hundreds of hours of work to retype over 1,000 of his poems from the original manuscripts. Your donations will help support this work.
