'fire station' poem (1 Viewer)

Does anybody have the complete text of Bukowski's poem about visiting a firehouse with his girlfriend, playing poker, and basically pimping her out? I can't find my copy of it and I can't recall what book it's in.
Thank you!

Fire station in Run... p.158

we came out of the bar
because we were out of money
but we had a couple wine bottles
in the room.

it was about 4 in the afternoon
and we passed a fire station
and she started to go
crazy:

Maybe a little off topic, but what is it with women going crazy over firemen? " Oh, but they save lives." Yeah, right.
I like that poem because of the way Bukowski took them for some drinking money. Maybe even some rent money too.

You're right, it's like I am about those uniforms the girls at Hot Dog on a Stick wear.

You know Gerard, your question got me thinking. Are women attracted to firemen? Personally I have never been and have had no girlfriends married to guys in uniforms. But again, let's define a uniform. . . if jeans and t-shirt are!?

Back to topic, she said:
"a FIRE STATION! she screamed,I just love FIRE engines, they're so red and
all! let's go in!"

Reading these words, I can almost hear Buk's voice imitating a woman's voice at a reading.

"The law is wrong; I am right"
"We would'nt want a scandal, would we? We both might lose our jobs. Of course, I'm not working."

"Nice clean girl. I ride it myself"

"Then she came down the pole. She was good with the pole. A real woman. Nothing but guts and ass."

:D

Yes I do know that some women like their men in uniforms. I really had to think about that. The kind of men who choose a career that requires a uniform and also the type of women attracted to such men. It probably has to do with power . Life savers , saviours. As I said if I would have to choose one, I'd go for a happy one,without the gun, the hose, maybe one with a needle or a pill.
