Charles Bukowski

I've recently begun seeing a lot of Charles Bukowski's work. I don't know much about him as a person, but I really like what I've read of his poems so far. I've seen some references to misogyny and hatred, but the way he chose to put words together makes me smile.

I just found this line in a poem of his:

Some human beings are delicious and wondrous things

I quite agree.

I'm not familiar with Charles but I wanted to drop by since it's been a while and give you hugs! I miss you!

I find his writing to be strangely reflective of how I'm feeling when I read it. A lot of it is dark and morbid, and I love it.

I miss you too, love. We need to chat sometime soon!
