A Bukowski Zine 2017

Discussion in 'Support the small press' started by Dirtydoh, Jun 5, 2017.

  1. OK...so there has been a Bukowski zine but I am thinking of a one-off zine with pieces dedicated to the man himself including poetry/essays/fiction/art/photographs etc.

    I am seeing more and more people get excited for Bukowski so I want to put together a little something.

    Anyone interested in contributing?

    Bad poetry? That I can do... How bad need it be? I can get pretty awful. All kidding aside I was considering doing the same but writing all the poetry myself and putting fake names to the various poems but then "My ambition is handicapped by my laziness." and I didn't do a thing except write bad poetry for myself and the occasional good poem for the wife.
     
  5. I would be more than interested to read your bad/good poetry.

    Poetry about love is always a blast.

    That's interesting you would say that. I have a tricky time with poetry about love. Don't quite find it a blast. Love and poetry about love. But it is a part of life. Not gonna ignore it either.
     
  7. Not even Bukowski's girlfriend comparing his wind to a fog horn? That is pretty romantic.

    Don't get me wrong. There is poetry about love I like, sure. But lots of folks, it seems, who don't know a lot about poetry, automatically link love & poetry and I don't automatically do that.
