Bukowski himself said, "if you're trying to write like someone else, forget it," and I know you would never write like anyone but Nick. Yeah, you may be influenced. But before Coleridge it was all poesy, before Rimbauld there was no prose poetry, before Whitman there was no free verse... Where does influence end and a soul begin? Just because you do not start a movement doesn't mean anything. Carrying forth a movement until its message can be read by future activists is still a great calling.
I'm just bored. Slinging the first thought that comes to mind, which is often poor advise.
