Bukowski is the male Rupi Kaur

"you"

you’re a beast, she said
your big white belly
and those hairy feet.
you never cut your nails
and you have fat hands
paws like a cat
your bright red nose
and the biggest balls
I’ve ever seen.
you shoot sperm like a
whale shoots water out of the
hole in its back.

beast beast beast,
she kissed me,
what do you want for
breakfast?

    i feel like if i discovered Bukowski when I was 13 i would have thought he was so cool.

    Now, almost 30, his work comes across as immature and banal. Anyone could write what he wrote.

    I truly don't understand how this kind of puerile crap is considered literature. It's pure kitsch. An adolescent society applauds this ridiculousness.
    There are people who shove glass jars up their asses, people who spend their money on Star Wars, and people who give relevance to a repulsive alcoholic.

      People think because it's raw and honest it's somehow worth of praise. Anyone can write about getting loaded, gambling and hating their job. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but if that all you can write then who cares.

      That's really all I think Bukowski said.

        I've only read Post Office by him on the offer of a friend who swears by his writing, and I didn't get into it for this exact reason. Plenty of people drink and hate their job, so just stating that fact bluntly I don't find too interesting. But there were also little instances where I felt I gleaned a little wheat from it: a short chapter about some veteran post office worker getting fired, and then the point where his lady dies. If the book had more of those brief points of meaning and emotion rather than another forty pages of him drinking, fricking, and betting on horses, I probably would've actually liked it as a "raw and honest" portrayal of modern life.

      Bukowski said work was bad, so I assume that he's of the Antiwork camp.

    I’ve been drunk in front of cracked bathroom mirrors
    in Southern towns of nowhere
    holding a paring knife near the jugular vein and
    grinning.
    that’s when I first learned that stage play is
    a great substitute for
    reality:
    the only separation between doing and
    pretending to do
    being that infinite line of
    choice: a
    choice between nothing and
    nothing.
    to awaken in the morning, to
    find a place of
    employment
    where the workers accepted everything
    but the dream of
    escape.
    there were so many places like
    that.
    there was a job in this town
    in Louisiana
    which I left each evening
    tired and dulled
    to that night again
    pouring glassfuls and
    looking out the
    window and
    thinking about a girl at
    work
    in an ill-fitting green dress
    who cursed continually about
    almost everything.
    I only wanted to frick her
    once and
    get out of
    town.
    I only got out of town,
    which means I made a choice between
    staying nowhere and going
    nowhere,
    and I imagine if she’s alive she’s
    still cursing about
    something
    but I no longer hold the paring knife
    near the jugular vein—
    the end is getting
    close enough
    all by
    itself.

      This isn't supposed to be deep. It's about the working class experience, the alienation, a personal way of seeing the world, also an attempt at finding a language in opposition to the high literary tone in poetry that was the standard at the time.

    Bowakowski is probably one of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century. He was the first to re-instate rationalism (clear-mindedness) in the west after the past half-century of the acceptance of "axioms" by religious zealots (Russell, Godel, et cetera)

    I recently read through a collection of his short stories and actually really enjoyed a few of them: The Birth, Life and Death of an Underground Newspaper, Life and Death in the Charity Ward, and The Copulating Mermaid of Venice, Calif. I also liked picrel that used to be uploaded on YouTube.

        A Drinking Partner was also good. I do agree that much of his poetry is shit, but you must degenerate to a certain level to really feel his writings. I respect Bukowski and admit that I am an angry, embittered, alcoholic and impoverished low-skilled worker, but I love that homie like you wouldn't believe. I can produce an homage to him in 72 hours if you would like to read it.

        I'm working class and he fricking sucks. This is just filth, not even 'relatable' (moronic zoomer word) or beautiful or fun or anything of worth.

        I feel like you guys probably have only read out of context excerpts of some of his poems, without actually giving him a chance or reading his good stuff. The Bluebird for example might catch your fancy is you haven't read it yet. If you legitimately gave him a chance and still think he sucks what poet do you like?

          Bluebird is decent. I tried to get into poetry reading Bukowski because he's a funny guy but I think I really just don't like poetry in general that much but I agree that some of Bukowski's poems are better than the one in the OP.
          I think the OP poem is a funny story though, just doesn't work that well as a poem.

    I had just won $115 from the headshakers and
    was naked upon my bed
    listening to an opera by one of the Italians
    and had just gotten rid of a very loose lady
    when there was a knock upon the wood,
    and since the cops had just raided a month or so ago,
    I screamed out rather on edge—
    who the hell is it? what you want, man?
    I’m your publisher! somebody screamed back,
    and I hollered, I don’t have a publisher,
    try the place next door, and he screamed back,
    you’re Charles Bukowski, aren’t you? and I got up and
    peeked through the iron grill to make sure it wasn’t a cop,
    and I placed a robe upon my nakedness,
    kicked a beercan out of the way and bade them enter,
    an editor and a poet.
