The Cruelty of Loveless Love
Just finished reading Hitler Painted Roses for the third time, and I know that some of you aren't the biggest Richmond fans by reading previous threads, but I was wondering if you knew of any Bukowski poems that directly reference Richmond. There has been a lot made of their relationship, their letters back and forth, and so on, but it doesn't seem that Steve comes up much in Bukowski's poems. This is somewhat surprising since Bukowski references his friends, idols(Fante) and esp. his publishers(Martin etc.) a great deal throughout his works. But I could be completely wrong.
