Appreciation …

… Honoring Charles Bukowski: A working poet for the ages - An-Nahar English. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)

Having given up for over a decade his attempts at fiction and narrative writing, a nearly fatal illness and hospitalization inspired him to take up the typewriter again. Instead of writing short stories, he composed short narrative style poetry, but much like a boxer in the ring, each line was a short jab, uppercut or a roundhouse.
