How could you just write this and post it on the internet for people to
see? Is this true? I hope it's not. I was raped once and it was a horrible
experience. I felt like dying afterwards, you don't even know! Or maybe you
do, either way you're a sicko and you need to be taught some kind of
lesson... Do you really think that rape makes you someone??

i find this poem VERY offensive. i was a rape victim not too long ago and
to think this guy didnt even care about what he did... that it just made
him "somebody".. well guess what it makes you a nobody! people that have no
consent to have sex shouldnt. this should be taken off the internet this
guy cant be made known because he raped a girl. its wrong and so is
exposing it to the public. wow he must be pretty proud of what he did to
tell and show everyone.. what a jerk

Wait... Did 5 different people asked Charles Bukowski why he wrote and
posted this on the internet just now?
People, you might want to actually click on the name of the author and read
a little...

My gosh, very shoking.
I am also yet another poet who adores power of the words yet I think that
this isn't something I enjoy reading.
Coming from a girl who has acctualy been raped, I don't know how you could
write something like this, well write okay but post on internet? well, all
and all it is a good poem for it unlocks an emotion yet I don't think it to
be a poem I will read more often.

I am also a poet and I that to right a good poem you need to actually
experience what you are writing about as many poets do. But I don't think
that you should write about your past rape experience because it isn't a
funny matter. But you are kind of a weirdo , because rape is stepping over
boundraries that should never been touch unless allowed too.

It sounds like this poem is true...And if your just fucking around and u
think that rape is a funny thing then fuck you! You have no idea! So if
thats the case you really need help!

bad person...i was raped twice and you really dont know how it feels to be
raped...but then again maybe you do...well you need help!!
