Reading Bukowski’s
new poetry and short story
collection,”Betting on the Muse”
his kisses on once rippling skin lies
over California’s street cred roads
uncovered from pallid nights of love
making out with the expressed mouths
on sleepless trains of bodies
spirited in piercing passes
of time out tattoos
and you, Charles Bukowski
thinking you are number one
more than any slumbering fugitive
with energies into vein passages
of symbols and bloody retreats
in solitary brooding nights,
dropping your weights on boards
of splintered circled floors
resembling Dante’s Hell
with liquid beer in one hand
falling off the scales
in cheap rent motel rooms
surprising a welcome
from lodging houses
nourishes your punk syllables
of male malevolent tales
to overwhelm us
with your literary output.

Glad to hear an interest in a poetry revival in Los Angeles, as the days of Bukowski are remembered, new poets will emerge for it is intrisic to
every society and civilization, in a realization of its ideas and dreams.
My best,
