Charles Bukowski, "Women"
If I had been born a woman I would certainly have been a prostitute. Since I had been born a man, I craved women constantly, the lower the better.
What does he mean with the lower the better? I understand the literal meaning but don't understand this particular application. The lower I craved the better or the lower (women socially) the better. Or something else?
