friends within darkness, but no friend in the white cube

What if I say no?
What if I say fuck off?
But you don't get it
cos my weakness is,
I was far too polite.

the more i read, the more i fall for him! but his books are always expensive, always put in my wishlist. to quote his verse for my present feeling,

"finally, starved and beaten, I had to go into
the streets to be interviewed for low-paying and
by strange men behind desks
men without eyes men without faces
who would take away my hours
break them
piss on them."

- Charles Bukowski

it's interesting that i only encountered Bukowski related film and song, while never read him. but like the song suggests, he should be a pretty good read!

you must be saying factotum, i didn't watch the film, matt dillon as cinaski/bukowski? difficult to imagine. but the words of this dirty old man are surely as addictive as any alcohol.
