Charles Bukowski the rumble-poet

you’re a beast, she said
your big white belly
and those hairy feet.
you never cut your nails. . . .

You might not know Charles Bukowski. Or not like him. But listen to him - he's funny, intelligent, subtly aggressive(and he's just so... American, I guess).

I know, I know what I was thinking (I think):
He's as close to a person as a poet can get.
