Charles Bukowski

I must roll another cigarette and watch the blue smoke curl and curl and curl and let myself feel good for a few moments. I never used to let myself feel too good. Now, for some reason, I feel like I deserve to feel good.  — Charles Bukowski, from a letter to Carl Weissner, Screams From The Balcony: Selected Letters 1960 – 1970. (Black Sparrow Press, December 12th 1993)
