Genius. Who? Not me.
Today I would like us to celebrate the greatest, the genius Charles Bukowski. Bukowski is a German-American poet, novelist, and short story writer whose works are depictions of the downtrodden American social, cultural, and economic life. Known for his satiric and sometimes vulgar remarks, he has caught the interest of many (including me) with his crisp and clever style of writing.
I have read and re-read his poems but one can never get enough of them. He has a way of bringing poetry to the streets, to the masses. He is smart and mad intertwined. And much more. I’ve always wanted to follow his style. To say profound things in simple ways. But as of this time, it’s a work in progress.
“Genius might be the ability to say a profound thing in a simple way.”
― Charles Bukowski
How about you? What’s your writing style?
Happiest birthday, Bukowski!! ❤
