I think those that confuse prettiness with substance might not get this one. It's the same theme as "Blackbird", really: the soft side of the hard-ass. Bukowski was a tough guy to whom nothing was sacred, but he gets so defensive of his poetry. I think the contradiction and confusion are what make it so meaningful.
