Happy Birthday Hank !

I'm planning on picking up some Henieken later and making my way through War All The Time. I'll probably also read "This is What Killed Dylan Thomas", a personal favorite.....

I wonder what he would think of the world today,
12 years later and so different.
I can not imagine what it will be like 12 years from now,
Christ, 2018

To you Buk,
I hope someone's on the hill to pour you a beer

Happy birthday Buk! It's been 12 years since you passed and you're more popular than ever. You have certainly added to to the quality of my life!
I hope that you're all right up there with the gods and that you and them are celebrating your birthday, drinking some fine german Riesling...

to be immortal in this tomb of a world
having all the cigaretts
or wine
in the world!"

88 is a good number.
Tonight is a night to watch the Bukowski Tapes.
Bottle of organic red wine, smokes.
Best wishes to Linda Lee.
It's funny. The night before last, I watched a bit of "The Bukowski Tapes," and I've had a yen lately to pull out "The Night Torn Mad with Footsteps," "Slouching Toward Nirvana," "Notes of a Dirty Old Man," and "Post Office."

Scratch that.

My entire collection of Bukowski books, really, including the volumes of letters.

Now I know why I wanted to.

Happy birthday Hank, and thank you for all the work that changed me in heart and mind when I was 19, and still affects me the same way at 24.

I should request "Barfly" again from the L.A. County library system. From no other writer could you get the line, "Your mother's cunt smells like carpet cleaner."
