A Gorilla reads a Bukowski Poem

Charles Bukowski wasn't *just* a beer drinking machine. He was a sensitive Cancer who self-medicated and wrote all night. Maybe like some of you do.

As much as we love the man, we aren't quite sure which poem this is since he had many who had "Love" in the title. But names and titles and formalities are so unimportant when you have a virtual gorilla "reading" a funny and great poem. So enjoy tonight's Midnight Movie.
