soup, cosmos and tears

I found this poem wedged into the first Bukowski book I ever picked up off my dad's shelves. It was ripped out of a magazine, and there is a vintage porno picture on the back.

roni,

The poem appeared in issue #79 (1970). Apparently, it was also published as a broadside.

It was an offprint from that Evergreen issue, much like the offprints from The Ohio Review (two poems, 1973, signed by Bukowski, 10 copies only) or the "About a Non-Typing Night" broadside (Germany, 1984).

This was collected in The People Look Like Flowers At Last.

Or was it ruined in The People? I guess it wasn't because the poem search doesn't say it was.

There was also a bootleg of this one. I think it was the same design but bigger and on really thin paper.
