what can I do?

it’s true:
pain creates a lot of
art,
madness,
murder
and the
various.

I’d rather not choose
this damned
pain
but it finds
me

and the royalties
roll on
in.

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.
