my turn

the male reviewer writes that he
misses the poems about
the drinking bouts and the hard
women and the low
life.

the female reviewer writes that
all I write about
is drinking and puking and
women
and a life nobody would
ever care
about.

their reviews are
on the same page
and are about
the same book

and
this is a poem
about
book reviewers.

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.
