hemingway 3

man can not be de-
feated, h’ said, but
yes!, destroyed, as though

my distinction, was an
award, than a grand
canyon space between,
two: are! they options? /

refuse, then to bow;
look up, ’e’s passing?.
(those that killed caesar
had among them, those
he’d pardoned/received
within his own men.)

red herring, i think:
it is ‘twixt ’defeat’
and ‘being destroyed’:
suicide, being first said
hints that h, did not,
but played russian rou-
lette with the trigger
as said n mailer
as did chiko prince
…and the man, die, so.

the man in islands
cites death in nature…
when cyclone busts boat/
house down would be ‘right
I be took, then, too.’

yet, i did think h
did take the right step,
how they let strokes; then
string, hold you up, when
when you cannot hold
frames/crutches, or sit;
just lie still for rats \
other annoyings;
one does hear whispers/(ed)
ngawing’s, rat’s to-do’s /
they blackmark you, one
confidentially, said,
were’t known: complaints/you, tagged

and here’s me hearing:
you could end with some
series of strokes; some
do, with what you’ve got;
years of exercise
and medication
to help withstay same:
thinking Hemingway
missed out / skidadled;
must have strawberries /
peaches and (ice-)cream,
all, there too, surely…


think will join gun club
think automatic
that paper i throw
always hits the bin /
still think governments
are fifth columnists
who want to dis arm
us for terrorists
not as dangerous
think as the hypo

(landon was fastest /
hung as tom dooley;
tom dooley too was
famed vietnam doctor)

    surely indeed… within the exhaustion of expression, of assessing situations and considering influence, our own underlying truths remain loud as ever… just like hemingway. always digging your work my friend. :-)
