Are you people actually serious? Charles Bukowski wrote this poem before
all of you were born. And even if he did rape someone(which he didn't) the
point of the poem is that rape is something that causes powerful emotions
in people. This makes it the perfect candidate for poetry, because after
all, the best poems aren't about the fucking red rose, they are about the
serious emotions that we all feel. It is power like that which the poem
posesses that caused Bukowski to be regarded as one of the greatest poets
in the 20th century.

stupidity. if any of the people who posted comments about this poem has
ever read anything before in thier lives i would be very shocked and
disappointed. the key to poetry is NOT TAKING IT LITERALY YOU MUST READ
BETWEEN THE LINES. NO BUKOWSKI DIDN'T RAPE THE FUCKING GIRL SHE WAS OVER AT
HIS APARTMENT AND PROBABLY WANTED TO FUCK HIM MORE THEN HE DID HER. RAPE IS
NOT A FUNNY THING BUT IT IS VERY REAL. IN THIS POEM BUKOWSKI IS USING THE
WORD RAPE FIGURATIVELY DESCRIBING THE TYPE OF SEX (CONSENTUAL SEX) HE IS
ABOUT TO HAVE WITH THIS GIRL. the poem is raw and real and about animal
instinct not a felony crime, read some more about this author he might
change your life and the way you read. that is if you learn how to

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

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.

wow thats was a really powerful poem!I would hope it is not true because if
it is why would you put that online so people could see what you did to

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!
