Bukowski'esque poem

I've started reading Bukowski after a long hiatus. Like last time, his poems inspire me to write my own:

Beer on one side

whiskey on the other

and I sip them both

until my typing

starts to lokok lkie thsi

I like that.

I'm a Shel Silverstein fan, myself, even though I'm old now. His stuff beats the "poetry masters" hands down.

Sheer post-modernist genius, mate! Within the carefully-nuanced cadences of your verse, one can, though meticulous deconstruction(using the proto-structualised parameter method codified initially by Foucault), detect the yearning for a Palestinian homeland and a two-state solution. "Beer"(Israelis) on one side, "whiskey"(Arabs) on "the other"(the Other, as per Edward Said): "I sip them both" is a confessional, a profound celebration of both cultures, leading to the inevitable intoxication, disorientation(and inability to distinguish reality).

I just thought it was a lesson on why not to mix hard liquor and beer.

Beats me....

BTW, your blog is not "stupid" as you call it. I find it interesting and intelligent.
