bambibeatdown asked: the blood/white belly/ocean poem that 'sadnessof' was talking about is called 'as the sparrow'.
thetellersoundsthealarm asked: you’re a best, she said your big white belly and those hairy feet. you never cut your nails and you have fat hands paws like a cat your bright red nose and the biggest balls I’ve ever seen. you shoot sperm like a whale shoots water out of the hole in its back. beast beast beast, she kissed me, what do you want for breakfast? (it's from the book love is a dog from hell.) and sorry, tumblr won't let me post the poem with the line breaks.
sadnessof asked: There is a poem by Charles Bukowski where he talks about looking at the ocean and I know he says something about blood and white bellies... I can't remember exactly and I can't remember the name of the poem. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
