  1. One of my favourites. I’d not heard Charles’ reading before so thanks for sharing that!

    I’m glad you liked it. Sometimes, I like to get back to basics. Bukowski (and Waits, too, I guess) is the real deal.

  3. Dalva says:

    Oh, how I love his ugly face….he makes it all sound so simple.
    Thanks for this.

  4. Utter bliss. Thanks.

    Glad you folks like this one: it was a day for financial realities for me, so I decided on a tribute–to ourselves.

  6. Both readings are terrific, with the poet having the edge, I think. Thank you.

  7. yeltnuh says:

    Hope your readers (me included) love it, too. Thanks.

    “it may not be much light
    but it beats the darkness.”
    I love that outlook.

  9. I love Bukowski’s work. But this is the first time I’ve heard him read. What a voice. And what can you say about Tom Waits. A treasure.
