If any of you have ever came to really know the words of modest
mouse...bukowski is a big impression on Isaac Brock. His words come to
almost the same things in ways. Isaac and him lived almost a same life in
ways. But when Isaac still looks back at it..he knows what was the asshole
and whatnot. Modest Mouse...speaks just the words as I. Bukowski..to
Isaac..to any other real lifer..dreamer....drifters that there may
be..this. is true living. and loving.

this poem is great, but you should check out some of Bukowski's other
stuff- it's also amazing!!

Meter, tempo, and mood are all bull shit creative writing philosophy real
poetry has feeling. Buk had more emotion in this one poem then most will
ever manage to pen over whole writing career.

I don't see a lot of analysis going on here. Where are the comments on his
meter, tempo and mood?

This reads more like a brief essay on rage, sorrow, anger and despondency.
"Found joy" is wherever you can get it. Isn't that obvious?

He certainly doesn't stack up next to Shakespeare, Benet or Yolenzo of

Sometimes you feel like there isn't anything to live for. This man felt so
many reasons to die but felt so many reasons to live. There isn't a person
in this world who could say they can't relate to this scenario. The poem is
long but that is needed to create the mood of the poem.

Joshua is right. Everyone who reads this poem should check out "let it
enfold you" and vice versa. Senses Fail singer Buddy Nielsen is a genius
and a great poet as well as song writer.

I still smash bottles and have bad blood. Old Bukowski, now theres a man
who knew how to live.

Senses Fail wrote a song called "Let it Enfold You" and it's based off of
this poem. You should listen to it, Senses Fail is awesome.

Kevin says it's one of the world's greatest poems.
Jim says it's one of the world's longest poems.

Jim sucks.

From what the other guy said, the poem must be interesting, but it was
quite long and i didn't get past the second line.
