and they put a mind
in there and
sometimes a soul,

With this poem, it's not true but it's a true feeling. He even makes reference in his 'Aliens' piece that there are people who live in good health, with good family lives, and comfortably all around for the duration of life until dying a peaceful death during sleep. In Bukowski's life, the landfills and graveyards were the only thing that grew with any consistency. It's that sad, uncomfortable reality that most of us on earth never find a 'one' that he processed in his way.

Bukowski nails the hopelessness of the search for peace and's the futile search.

I like this stark picture of life in a modern city, in free verse, where 'the madhouses fill'

there's no chance at all: we are all trapped by a singular fate....// yeah; exactly; lonely we faced and trapped into the brittle of our wit and wisdom

A sad reality for a lot of people chasing the dream?

Very dark and gloomy! If the goal is to express the utmost ugliness and disappointment with life the poem succeeds with high style.
