Welcome to another young Turk.
We just met this guy.<click there and see his New Blood post. I think Bukowski would have liked Turkey since the weather is like Los Angeles( buy your coast ) and you have some good red wine. Does Tekel still distribute everything?
Hello, Onur! Welcome to the boards!

I had the same feeling myself when I discovered Buk's poetry. He read like nothing and no one else I've ever seen. And still does. He inspires me.

its not related with the subject but i like this poem:

Yes Yes by Charles Bukowski

when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low

when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountians and the sea and fire at the same time

He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe.
