Remembering Hank

The poet and novelist Charles Bukowski died on this day, March 9, in 1994.

In his memory, an excerpt from his poem "Old Man, Dead in a Room," first published in "The Outsider" magazine in 1961:
"... and as my grey hands
drop a last desperate pen
in some cheap room
they will find me there
and never know
my name
my meaning
nor the treasure
of my escape."

Roger Ebert has a nice online memorial to Bukowski set up at the Sun-Times Web site. Check it out.
