The laughing heart

This isn't new, but I hadn't seen this before, so maybe some of you are interested as well: Tom Waits reading the poem The laughing heart written by Charles Bukowski. I am not completely sure, but I think it's a clip from the documentary Born into this. The other man on the video is U2 singer Bono, reciting Roll the dice.

Yes, this is from "Bukowski: Born Into This". Tom's reading made me go out immediately and buy the book! Been a Bukowski fan ever since...
