my god

you know that little girl
who used to run around
on the lawn across the street?

look what happened
overnight
it seems:

large breasts
large ass
long legs
long hair

eyes of
blue fire.

we can no longer
accept her
like that

she is filled with
15 years of
trouble.

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.
