did they
my name



if charles bukowski had been born to a rich family or pretty or french, we would have missed out on so damn much, and it's not like he complained.

the beauty of bukowski is that he never complained.

hem shot himself in the head, twain raised his fist to the sky and aged bitterly, and vonnegut didnt even write the best thing we ever thought he wrote: that graduation speech that says to live in new york city once before you die.

charles bukowski never had to live in new york city.
