The 6 Foot Goddess by Charles Bukowski: poetry podcast #16

I have a great poem for you today—it’s full of interesting tensions, love, sex and tenderness, but first I must warn you . . .

WARNING: This poem contains some ADULT LANGUAGE, ADULT CONTENT, and COARSE SLANG, so it’s not really suitable for children or people who are sensitive to these things.

What can I say, it’s Charles Bukowski—gotta love Charles Bukowski—and with him comes a bit of a bar mouth. {Click on his name above to find out more about this wonderful poet}

Now that all of my disclaimers are over, let’s get to it!

{this is a “block print” I made a long time ago (pre-blog) when I was messing around with some extra clay I had. I made a block by just cutting off a slab of clay and carving into it. Then I let the clay dry and printed it. Not sure if this is really a recommended technique, but it was fun! This little goddess sits on my desk, and I love her.}

And finally, the podcast:

You can read the words of this poem: here
I found the poem in Bukowski’s collection called Love is a Dog from Hell. Catchy title huh?

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for listening!
