I was at a young womans funeral recently on the back of the funeral mass info was a bukowski poem with the words small place in the heart . I can not for the life of me find this beautiful poem anywhere anyone out there know this work?
That line doesn't appear in any of Bukowski's poetry.
Unless the funeral handout was quoting a poem published in an obscure, unknown literary magazine. Which is possible, but pretty improbable. More likely is you're remembering it incorrectly or someone took something they heard or saw somewhere and stuck Bukowski's name on it. Which seems to happen quite often.
I just Googled a few variations of that phrase and found nothing related to Bukowski. My gut tells me that someone probably mistakenly attributed the poem in question to Bukowski. Literary "experts" seem to rely on Facebook exclusively for this purpose - no disrespect to your friends there. In times of grief, these things can happen to anyone.
