Poem-a-Day: "Poetry Readings"

A poem selected by Amanda Boehm, English 348:

"Poetry Readings," by Charles Bukowski.

Read or listen:

Charles Bukowski was an American poet, novelist, and short story writer who wrote mostly confessional work about his life, alcohol, women, sex, life as ordinary and lower class, and the reality of living as a professional writer. He was born in Germany, but lived in Los Angeles and got influence from Los Angeles’s social, economic, and cultural state. It is believed that the popularity of Bukowski’s work is due the intimacy of his writing and honesty to his audience.
~Amanda Boehm, UW-Eau Claire student, English 348
