..and in crtisizing the poem we do exactly the opposite of everything
bukowski says..!!!!! the man is a genius if that was his intention??? but
we will never know..

i cant say i agree with bukowski wholly but parts are i suppose are
generalities that cannot be argued against..each line has some truth in it
to apply to some people but as a complete piece of work he contradicts
everybody's existence to be anything. perhaps there is where the dilemna
lies, one is neither average or otherwise. he limits expression whilst
sitting on a mountain which is too high, even for him . one cannot feel
comfortable with this piece of work which perhaps is bukowski's aim. in
preaching Bukowski himself becomes average. Perhaps somethings are best not
aired!!

Buk certainly must have felt himself to be the genius of the crowd and the
title has a double meaning, because he must have felt despised by the
crowds' collective genius of hating his art so vehemently. It's really
crazy how people in general only feel safe to embrace genius after it's
gone because they themselves do not possess it. I think this poem is
terribly sad and irrefutably true.
