The problem of "success" …

… Solitary Praxis: "about competition" by Charles Bukowski.

I live a few blocks away from an Acme supermarket that stands where the old Moyamensing Prison used to be. Bukowski did a short stretch there after WWII, when he lived in Philly, on Spring Garden Street, right around the corner from where The Inquirer used to be. The actual bar that was the basis for Barfly wasn't in LA, but up the street from The Inquirer at Broad and Fairmount.

  1. Marvelous poem, Frank. Just to note, what I believe you know that it is Bukowski's 96th birthday today
