A JAWS story

In deep ocean water when fear kicks in because an unexpected wave twists on your foot and your heart skips a beat. You start to speed up your treading but that only makes it worse, for a minute you look into the water, but not being able to see past your own knee’s you thrash even harder panicked while your thoughts race faster than your heart can beat. “Fuck, I’m prey in the ocean, in over my head.” …

Henry Charles Bukowski Jr. Is a good Writer, there we said it, there is no going back.

Very few contemporary writers hold the cult status that Bukowski does. And almost none found notoriety in their late fifties.
