I just read this: https://bukowski.net/manuscripts/displaymanuscript.php?show=poem1991-00-00-the-longest-snake-in-the-world.jpg&w=3277 that is considered poetry? or am I missing something? now I wrote this not to long ago: i wish i wouldn't mind being around people so much but for the most part i find them so an noying but at the same time i wouldn't want to be all by myself in complete isolation in conclusion i like people only close enough to make them out as a human being but not that close where i recognize any details. *** ok, why is what Bukowski wrote considered poetry but what I wrote isn't? let me add this poem as well: https://tinyurl.com/vweq4e5 After that, I'll never feel bad for what I write after The Niceties.
