"Upon finding out my affinity for Charles Bukowski, I’ve had many people ask: “What could you possibly have in common with a dirty old man?” Turns out, quite a bit. That’s the beauty of poetry. Bukowski’s “Betting on the Muse” helps rule my day-to-day by serving as a continuous reminder that life is only as bleak as you make it. Though his texts are littered with debaser activity and crestfallen tales, his underlying theme to keep going, even through hell, is a virtue I carry with me, always."
