  1. 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.

  4. roni,

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

  6. Oh yeah?
    Says who?
  7. 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).
  8. thanks, baby!
  9. 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.
