A gargoyle? ;)
Gargoyles have always been the protect-ores of sacred sites, and countless ancient churches. I like the allusion between Buk and such. VERY meaningful.I always thought Buk looked like a gargoyle too (a handsome gargoyle, Linda - if you're reading this) and assumed the cover to "Love Is A Dog From Hell" was an allusion to this also.
In all fairness, I have to admit his comment on Bukowski is pretty decent. As for politics, I'm surprised to hear he's a liberal. How does he manage to blend in with all those conservatives in the "heartland"? My dislike of him is more animal instinct than rational; he just pisses me off, hearing his voice. I've got a bad attitude about him. I would hate (and I mean it; it's not sour grapes) to have him read one of my poems on the air. I'd rather be touted by an army of certified imbeciles.
