a different side of Buk

by gnarly on Mar 4, 2010

I generally avoid poetry and was actually attempting to avoid it when I bought this book. I must have missed it in the description or it was not mentioned but here it is. I really like it! The poems really speak to me, maybe because I've read so much Bukowski already and I know his style and life already. The one thing that struck me as different is there's a lot of beauty and niceness in the poems. He actually expresses joy at sunshine, flowers, cool breezes. Such uncharacteristic musings from a usually bitter writer! He does however take the piss out of the pompous and overeducated s-heads in the literary world so there's still a lot of good ol' badass Chinasky in there, too. Sometimes great things find you when you're not looking for them!
