Charles Bukowski...


...would have been 90 years old today. Cheers, Hank!

I Met A Genius by Charles Bukowski
I met a genius on the train
today
about 6 years old,
he sat beside me
and as the train
ran down along the coast
we came to the ocean
and then he looked at me
and said,
it's not pretty.

it was the first time I'd
realized
that.

  2. by the by, the movies are really bad, all!
    Barfly, Factotum, Ordinary Madness... but the documentary is really good, like his poems and some novels.

    by the by, there is a tale, in the Fucking machine I think, with many surrealistic and apocaliptics films elements (like Rosemary Baby, Frankestein, the end of the world, etc) Is called "Animal Crackers in My Soup" is a very good story
