Charles Bukowski reading his poem “Love.” This seems a fitting enough post for Valentine’s Day. Bukowski didn’t like holidays, chances are especially wasn’t a fan of this one, so this downtrodden little rumination on love seems like the only fitting thing to post today. Or maybe nothing at all would have been more fitting. But here’s Bukowski reading “Love” anyway. Okay, now I’m begging the question, forget it.
Below, a couple of fan made videos using audio from this reading. Enjoy, and good luck surviving the day.
“Now we’ll get back to the standard hard bullshit.”
