There is enough treachery, hatred violence absurdity in the average
Human being to supply any given army on any given day

And the best at murder are those who preach against it
And the best at hate are those who preach love
And the best at war finally are those who preach peace

Those who preach god, need god
Those who preach peace do not have peace
Those who preach peace do not have love

Beware the preachers
Beware the knowers
Beware those who are always reading books
Beware those who either detest poverty
Or are proud of it
Beware those quick to praise
For they need praise in return
Beware those who are quick to censor
They are afraid of what they do not know
Beware those who seek constant crowds for
They are nothing alone
Beware the average man the average woman
Beware their love, their love is average
Seeks average
But there is genius in their hatred
There is enough genius in their hatred to kill you
To kill anybody
Not wanting solitude
Not understanding solitude
They will attempt to destroy anything
That differs from their own
Not being able to create art
They will not understand art
They will consider their failure as creators
Only as a failure of the world
Not being able to love fully
They will believe your love incomplete
And then they will hate you
And their hatred will be perfect

Like a shining diamond
Like a knife
Like a mountain
Like a tiger
Like hemlock

Their finest art

And here you are, seething on a shit-posting board, sniggering little sneed you are, and nothing to show for it

it's funny because that poem is all about him. this board is full of lazy, hateful losers and their dull cynicism.

I read it in his voice.

Sounds like he's talking about leftoids

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)

I love how he wrote so much about what a sex-haver he was, yet this is what he was fucking.

>>19228423
most of his works are autobiographical but Ham on Rye is the only one that narrates his very fucked up childhood.
You can start there or with his poetry or both.
