MIND: Resist

I was introduced to Bukowski in 1974 by my creative writing professor, Don Chotro. I haven’t been the same since.

MIND / BODY / SOL

The problem was you had to keep choosing between between one evil and another, and no matter what you chose, they sliced a little bit more off you, until there was nothing left. At the age of 25 most people were finished. A whole goddamn nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidate who reminded them most of themselves.

I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape.”

Ham on Rye // Charles Bukowski
