The great who died unknown...

I am looking for a poem that has a line that says, "It is not the known great, but the great who died unknown." I believe that this is a Bukowski poem, and was hoping someone would be able to identify it for me.

The lines are from It's Not Who Lived Here. The poem appeared in The Roominghouse Madrigals (pg.21).

good choice, Lawless. I too always liked that poem a lot, esp the first lines.
 
After reading this, I could simply stop. What more can there be?
(Un?)-Fortunately,...i know there is more.
What a great piece. What a great piece.
