Sweaty Dreams | Poems that Suck

 Never read 
                     before bed.
                       You'll dream of 
                           shitty apartments, 
                               empty, rattling 
                                        wine bottles, 
                                            and  scabby hookers. 
                Then, mid dream, 
                    you'll realize
                        you're sweating
                                   between your ass cheeks.

      1. I am a Bukowski fan myself. I met him a long time ago. I was traveling the coastline of California and I didn’t who he was that day. , reading at poetry readings off highway one and drinking. I bought drinks for him and he read my work. He was mean as the devil and he told me. My poetry was shit, suffer more and you will become a good writer. I look forward to reading them. Bukowski wrote what he wanted and became famous. He didn’t allow it to change him.

      2. LOL I’m not surprised he was mean. He always said he treated men infinitely worse than women… and that should really say something. I do love his writing, the courage there… just to say it plainly.

      3. Absolutely … and his love poems were the best. They don’t idealize love, turn into some flower bullshit… he talks about the reality of it. I like that honesty.
