Channeling Ernest

Happy birthday to Ernest Hemingway born this day in 1899 who started out as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star. “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man (or woman); true nobility is being superior to your former self.”

Prose - Channeling Ernest

One of my favorite authors, if not the favorite is Ernest Hemingway. Here is my prose poem, Channeling Ernest originally appearing on my blog, The Blogging Owl.

lay me down

 

unwinnable
like the Vietnam war

no homecoming for the innocent
shame the prosthetic

toxic
seething
a gangrenous rage

oozing
like a warm pungent cheese

counting years
like yesterday
no separation
not even death

forgiveness
without repentance

lay me down
by peaceful waters

My spiritual place on earth where I find peace.
