Discovering Bukowski recently. I thought I would share The Twins with you – read by the poet himself. It’s a poem that made me smile.

I’ll miss your ass.

“What just my ass?

I’ll get you a replacement.”


Will she speak the words you speak?

Or lull me with your lilt?

Or fuck like you?

Shall she raise her fists as you do?

Or bang heads with me?


“Probably not.”

No, thanks.

I’ll miss your ass.
