There is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the averageHuman being to supply any given army on any given dayAnd the best at murder are those who preach against itAnd the best at hate are those who preach loveAnd the best at war finally are those who preach peaceThose who preach god, need godThose who preach peace do not have peaceThose who preach peace do not have loveBeware the preachersBeware the knowersBeware those who are always reading booksBeware those who either detest povertyOr are proud of itBeware those quick to praiseFor they need praise in returnBeware those who are quick to censorThey are afraid of what they do not knowBeware those who seek constant crowds forThey are nothing aloneBeware the average man the average womanBeware their love, their love is averageSeeks averageBut there is genius in their hatredThere is enough genius in their hatred to kill youTo kill anybodyNot wanting solitudeNot understanding solitudeThey will attempt to destroy anythingThat differs from their ownNot being able to create artThey will not understand artThey will consider their failure as creatorsOnly as a failure of the worldNot being able to love fullyThey will believe your love incompleteAnd then they will hate youAnd their hatred will be perfectLike a shining diamondLike a knifeLike a mountainLike a tigerLike hemlockTheir finest art

I like the sex parts of his books. Give me a big boner. don't like poetry though that's for girls
Best thing he wrote (not a very high bar)
>>19226140why don't you go dig him up and shove your nose more up his rotted out asshole? you have the mind of a nigger
>>19227775I'm actually doing something with my life, sneed, cry more, tho
>>19225391I love how he wrote so much about what a sex-haver he was, yet this is what he was fucking.
Where should I start with bukowski and should i
