a bukowski – 0014

I never liked poems
They meant nothing to me
Being taught about poems
Killed it for me
At school
We never read any Bukowski
The classes were long
Every ounce of inspiration gone
Drained by the lines
Of the poems selected
If only I had read a Bukowski
I thought poems were dead
Most of us do
Until we read Charles Bukowski
