Stay down, do you want to mess
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in
Through his poems, works of fiction, live readings, and other actions, Bukowski established a larger than life caricature of himself as someone who was extremely tough with a steely exterior. We can see this in poems like “Two Toughs” and “I Don’t Know About You But”. However, he had a handful of much lesser focused on works like The History of One Tough Motherfucker and this poem, which showed a very distinct compassion in Bukowski.
