Exactly. Bukowski had a sense of rhythm, and that shouldn't be dismissed. It isn't something that every poet has. Read most of the bad Bukowski imitators to get a taste of real arbitrary line breaks.I think good line breaks create a good sense of rhythm while crappy line breaks create shitty poems.
What are you talking about? Don't be so uptight...really there is no need for that. It has nothing to do with my opinion, it has everything to do with the content of the essay and what it says about bukowski.That makes your opinion on this worth about what?... two pinches of shit?
Olaf, that line specifically is the one he is referencing. Despite what your intention may have been this line tells the readers (us) that you have not read many essays on Bukowski and that this is the greatest one you have ever read, telling us essentially that your opinion meant very little. I'm having a hard time relating it better than ROC did.Fuck!
That was the finest essay I have ever read on Bukowski and I haven't read many.
Nah......and I saw a friendly type of discussion turning into an unfriendly bout of fisticuffs over it.
