This other guy, Hank told me was the guy who wrote that kind of corny but very popular tune - it went - "Blah blah blah, I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love" - any of you 60's guys remember that one? Well, that was ALL he ever wrote, or so Hank told me. He absolutely couldn't stand this guy. Made horrible fun of him. I think he hated the song, too. Don't you?
Bob Lind.

Bukowski wrote a few poems about him and ridiculed him in Hollywood, I believe (don't quote me on that).
And as I just read in an unrelated article, Bob Lind opened for Bukowski at the Golden Bear in October of 1975.

It's the circle of life.

This thread is interesting.

How do you know for sure that it's authentic?

It seems pretty legit, but, one can never be too sure.
It's not far fetched to think that there are lots of women out there who've had similar experiences with Buk, however. He liked the 20-25 year olds. Someone who was 20 in 1974 would only be 60. Not like they'd all have died off by now.

We know through a lot of different means, including off-forum contact.

Don't be so suspicious. It makes you less attractive to potential mates.

1) Who is "jean cooney blake"?
2) If you mean Jane Cooney Baker, she died 13 years before @mystery girl went to California to meet Bukowski, so I'm not sure what you'd expect her to know.
3) No 3, just seemed like there should be one.

Great thread! I had never read it. Did anyone ever see those letters?
I had to find out which Bob Lind song mystery girl was talking about.
