Poets Bukowski and Baudelaire on desire
June 3, 2015
Two quotations pointing in the same basic direction.
“Find what you love and let it kill you.” — Bukowski
“One must be drunk…. If you would not feel the horrible burden of Time that breaks your shoulders and bows you to the earth, you must intoxicate yourself unceasingly. But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, your choice. But intoxicate yourself.” — Baudelaire
