Bukowski is one of the greatest poets in recent history, and this work
certainly proves that. Still, whoever transcribed this version did a
terrible job. It is full of misspellings and typos. Though CB may have
hated himself, he was very proud of his work and this really doesn't do it

well bro, Buddy of Senses Fail did write the song 'Let It Enfold You' after
this poem, he read the poem nd if you notice closly to some of the stanzas,
he took some of words and made them int parts of the songs, like ''the lie
is the weapon'' the opening to the song goes ''so the lie now is my
weapon'' so actually he did base it off this poem..

This poem is the best I have ever read. Poets like Charles Bukowski make me
happy to have an English project on American Poets.

This poem is basically the best i've ever read. Charles Bukowski is an
amazing poet.
And Mark.. Senses Fail did write a song after it. 'Let It Enfold You' is
the name of the album and the song.

This is a great poem. However, Nicole, SF didn't write a song after it, the
album was titled after it.

this long piece is an excellent example of just why Buk was able to spread
literature into the penial system and down at the docks.he's an achetype
"everyman" writer (if, of course, you are an aging white male American).
the Formalists always smash away at his methods, flogging the Dead Greats
and disappearing up their own navels. this does nothing to detract from his
base appeal. when you read his works, you get in on the ground floor of a
mans ambitions to destoy the academic snobbery that has left poetry hanging
in the lurch like proses' ugly cousin. he despised those
"dilletanttes...playing piss-in-the-hat" that always railed against him. if
the tone of this poem appeals to you, beg, borrow or steal 'Dangling in the
Tournefortia'. you'll love it.

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.
