I had the great pleasure of working closely with MK designing the cover for her poem Mr. Bukowski I Didn’t Know You Were Dead. We came close several times, divining a few covers that came close, but not quite. Then she took the picture. While all the other cover attempts included my own efforts to fuse, meld, layer images together, this image, the one perfect vehicle to convey everything I wanted this cover to convey, required no modifications whatsoever. Even its inherent blur was perfect. Our patience paid off.
