Source of poems in audio recordings

Dear all,

I am trying to locate the source (poem title and publication details) for the following poems, which appear in Bukowski's audio recordings. These poems are not included in the database. Help is much appreciated

For each poem, I indicate the CD, track number and name and the first line of the poem.

"And I will send you a great sealed letter with a black scrawl at the bottom, sick and demented"

[Giorno Poetry Systems-Totally Corrupt] #2 CHRIST
"Christ, he told me, I went over there and there it was Barney in the corner, he was caught between the wall and the dresser."

[Hostage] #14 I BELIEVE IN EVIL
"Evil can do something exceptional. Now, accepted beauty only goes on gliding accepted beauty"

[Solid Citizen] #22 CANCER
"He wore a green silk shirt; all fashioned in black and white shoes"

That's the last stanza of the previous poem, "At The End Of Feet The Blackbird Walks."

[Giorno Poetry Systems-Totally Corrupt] #2 CHRIST
"Christ"

[Hostage] #14 I BELIEVE IN EVIL
I don't know where you got a version of Hostage with track numbers, but it sounds like someone made a track out of something Bukowski was saying before or after a poem.

[Solid Citizen] #22 CANCER
"No Hole In The Sky"

[At Terror Street and Agony Way] CD2, #21 MIGRANTS "migrants, ignorants, is only technical, let's hope, or the beer-filled dream is dead forever"
That's not a poem, it's something he says before reading "John Dillinger And Le Chasseur Maudit."

[King of Poets]: #2 SMART GIRL
"The Smart Girl"

#4 THE PLEASURES
"The Pleasures"

#8 MY FATHER
"My Father"

#13 HAMMER AND LEASH
"Hammer And Leash"

#15 THE SOLAR MASS
"The Solar Mass: Soul: Genesis And Geotropism:"

#16, THE LESBIAN
"The Lesbian"

#17, THE NIGHT I KILLED TOMMY
The Night I Killed Tommy

#19, PHOTO
"Photo"

#20, LIKE THAT
"Like That"
