The First One.

My first post is going to be about the poem "Question and Answer" by Charles Bukowski, just because I read it recently and I liked it. Chances are, thats how I'm going to choose most of these. . . You can find the poem at the following link. I hope you like it and find it as interesting as I did.

This poem was very real to me, not because I regularly play with knives or save people with my writing, but because I can picture it so vividly. When I read it, I can almost feel the humidness that covers everything in the summer and makes everything stagnant, even the air, it makes it hard to breathe and makes a person just want to sit there and not move if you can help it. I think the season he chose added dramatically to the overall feeling of the poem. This is the first poem by Bukowski that I have read and I hope the others live up to this one. I highly recommend it to people who read to transport themselves from their own world and to step inside another body and feel with their perceptions.

This is a great idea for a blog.

And mission accomplished with the Bukowski link. I read 'Post Office' a couple years ago and it didn't quite grab me. But that poem did. Thanks.
