  • I dreamed I was Bukowski
    Rock star poet
    Thinking in punches
    All bunched up around release
    Letting you in so I could fight you
    Big balls
    Giant balls
    Coughing myself to sleep

    Yeah, I dreamed I was Bukowski
    Second hand man
    Noisy introvert
    A weapon in a book
    Posthumous heckler
    And always
    Such great
