The Laughing Heart... (1 Viewer)

is I guess what brought me here. And that I somehow found myself at a poetry reading with one of Bukowski's ex-wives when I was like ten.

Since then, his writing and who he was has been an endless source of inspiration.

Happy to connect with anyone who feels the same way!




Usually wrong.
No, but I thought maybe that's who he meant. But he could mean Francis Smith. Or -- is it possible? -- Barbara Frye.
Oh, it was Francis Smith. It was a poetry workshop at Beyond Baroque in Venice, CA. I think she had a nick name as the bearded lady. I ended up reading one of my poems, they seemed to like it (bear in mind I was around ten).

Thanks for the responses.
