part of the riddle is solved.
That girl who asked me (a Canadian who's working on her thesis which is not about Bukowski but features his 'Apostrophe'-appearance) said, these lines come from Bukowski on 'Apostrophe' in 1978.
Here's her transcription of the part:
Bukowski: "Aaah. I'm accused of many things / the most glamorous are true / the most [??...] are untrue. / Whatever I am / [??...] and through what they read / but I still direct / without cause - I direct without cause. / But whatever is happening I accept / but without the fathead / although one of my girlfriends said / when I become famous / Oh, no - wait - I blew a line / I said to my girlfriend when I become famous / what will happen / she said, don't worry about it, because you were always a fathead."
He ends his answer with a "That's it."
The reason why she assumed, it could be from a poem is his remark "Oh, no - wait - I blew a line", which made her think, he was quoting from his mind.
I ain't sure about that, though. I think, he may as well have referred to the words of his girlfriend, when he suddenly realizes, he should say what he was telling to her first. I'd need to watch that part again to be sure.
So, what do you cats make of that?
