Here’s another beautifully produced broadside by the legendary Bill Roberts and his Bottle of Smoke Press. Bottle of Smoke Press has produced eight Bukowski broadsides since 2003, as well as countless other artists.

Personally, this poem is one of my Top 5 Bukowski poems. It may be short, but it packs as much punch as any long poem Bukowski wrote.

This is a variant version hand-numbered 8 by Bill Roberts. This variant uses what appears to be a think cardboard stock. There is an accidental vertical score traveling the entire sheet beginning before “last”. This variant does not include imprint or limitation information on the back.

What’s kind of amazing to me is that it first appeared in Scimitar And Song in July, 1960, and may have never been seen again until Bill found it. The broadside was published in 2009, the same year it appeared in The Continual Condition.

This copy is in Mint condition with a vertical cut stretching the length of the broadside from the original printing process.

Please see my listings for other variant copies Bill also produced.
