well, most of us were brought up with some sort of religious background, unless you're me.

it's a curious question though. was Bukowski a religious man? did he believe in god?
He believed he was not worthy- as in several poems. That is considered to be a higher spiritual stance. Higher than those tele-evangelist who say they talk to God and look down their noses at us.
Well, at least that's what I gather from some of his writing and maybe I am putting my own slant on it.

At least, making a casual refrence to heaven says something. IMO. St. Hank of San Pedro.
Sunday Afternoon In Heaven? - well, he often said later on that the gods had been good to him!
Interesting drawing! It's not one of the typical Buk drawings we're used to see.
Thanks, cirerita!

Thanks cire!
What an unusual drawing-style, so different from his others.

"some accept the possibility of God to help them get through
others take it straight on
and to these
I drink tonight."

(from: the finest of the breed in: you get so alone)

does this answer your questions kids?
Strange how the realistic bike has an abstract human-like something stuck on top of it. And what's that strange little object opposite the flower pot? With an arrow pointing up, to Heaven? An odd drawing, and early, 1964.
