“it was like any other 
relationship, there was 
jealousy on both sides, 
there were split-ups and 
reconciliations. 
there were also fragmented moments of 
great peace and beauty. 

I often tried to get away from her and 
she tied to get away from me 
but it was difficult: 
Cupid, in his strange way, was really 
there.” 
― Charles Bukowski, The People Look Like Flowers at Last
