This one doesn't appear anywhere, even in a magazine. I wonder if Bukowski never sent it out because he's used a font that's difficult to read? This is the only manuscript I've ever seen that uses this font, for what it's worth.

I don't know anything about Apple computers, but a little digging turns up that in the picture of Bukowski in front of his computer he's using a laser printer (a $3,299 Personal LaserWriter NT printer, to be specific), but as I go through the 90s manuscripts it seems that he started out with a dot matrix printer (like this manuscript).

That might help narrow down the dates of a lot of the computer-printed poems that are otherwise undated. I'll have to take a look.
