p.s. Did Neeli mention this poem in "Hank?" This may be old news....
Thanks, Bill & Nymark! - Yes, Neeli mentions it in "Bukowski - A Life" (first published as "Hank") on page 201-202, but he only quotes a little bit of the poem.
thanks bos!

I don't recall Neeli writing about this in 'Hank'. I only remember what they did some night to these submissions ...

Bukfan is too fast for me!
"call for the chesterfield midget"

I think maybe Buk & Neeli confused cigarette brands here. There was a midget in a bellhop uniform who ran around yelling "Call for Phillip Morris" in ads circa 1940/50s.
