Cool Bukowski

Currently reading my favourite Bukowski’s The Last Night of the Earth Poems, perhaps the final book of poetry he would publish in his lifetime. There’s a story like feel to his poetry and am enjoying reading this book published in 1992. Here’s an excerpt from Two Toughs:
anyhow, Jed never made it
to Notre Dame
and I never made it
anywhere
either--
. . .
damn, there was no way
it seemed
we could ever
lose
but we did.
