the way they like it (1 Viewer)

A good while ago now, I read something in a book of Bukowski's poetry. The idea was that even when someone (I think he referred to a specific woman) liked something that he liked (probably a classical composer), he still felt disdain because he didn't approve the way they liked it. They liked it for different reasons and didn't appreciate it like he did.

At the time, that poem hit home for me. I've tried google and searching this site, but I can't find it. Probably because I don't remember a specific line closely enough. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Very good Ponder.

Those clues are too vague for me.

The people want closure!
Now you can see a list of threads that don't have any responses. So if anyone ever feels compelled to tie up loose ends...

Mockery is a construct, maaan.

Like Li Po wrote in one of his beloved and revered haiku:

mockery is false
like water off a duck's back
let it flow from you
