“Man created God in his own image.”

suitofclouds asked: Not an ask, a recommendation. You should get your hands on Portions from a Wine-Stained Notebook: Uncollected Stories and Essays, 1944-1990. It is a collection of Bukowski material that hasn't really been published in many other places. It is one of my favorite collections of his work because it represents such a diverse spread of his art. I really think you would enjoy it!

I already love it. Do you know where can I get it in english? I always try to read authors in the original language.

Anonymous asked: Do you have a favorite poem?

This one is my favourite:

I met a genius on the train
about 6 years old,
he sat beside me
and as the train 
ran down along the coast
we came to the ocean
and then he looked at me
and said,
it’s not pretty.

-Charles Bukowski

mighty-sparrow asked: Do you have any tattoos?

No. I love them, but I get bored of things very quickly and I am afraid to get bored of something that I will have forever.

“When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I haven’t tried before.”
