    Good thing he threw that radio out the window so he'd be able to stick his head out and get a better look. Good thing that radio was so tough, so he could do it again and again. Wise that old Bukowski was. (Report) Reply

    I find this poem interesting. If you change the form and punctuation, It would be good prose. this is true with much of free form. (Report) Reply

    This sounds more like the Bukowski I know than the poems of his I just read. It also is considerably less accomplished as poetry. But amusing. He must write better when he's sadder. (Report) Reply
