no point in claiming to be someone you’re not when they won’t love you for who you are.
Full offense but bukowski is mediocre af and is pretty overrated thanks to hipsters who literally refuse to know better. there are TONS of latino/black/asian poets who are ARTISTS and whose work is almost flawless and just ethereal but... he's out there reading fucking bukowski. man, even baudelaire is better! even POE! but he's there... fucking... reading... bukowski... AND THINKING HE'S A GENIUS WTF
