Poem of the Week

Hey readers- guess what!? We’ve decided that each week we will bring you one of our favorite poems. This week we have “you do it while you’re killing flies” by Charles Bukowski.

Bukowski is honest and that’s what I love about him. I feel that he speaks his mind, no matter how absurd, or over the top it may be and this poem definitely speaks to that. He’s clever and comedic in a dark way. He writes about sex, drugs, alcohol, and loneliness. This is one of my favorite poems by him!
