‘The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.’ -Hemingway

For years I sat alone at night. I read Hemingway. His words helped. I turns out I wasn’t alone after all.

 

Odd Walking Thoughts

We remember you speaking. The yard wasn’t green. The Sun wasn’t yet too large. We wanted to imply nicely that your words weren’t much. We’d seen your last step. So our look, is a look, and a word isn’t said. Now, let us tell you, the sun did go down. We found ourselves a book. In the book were the words you’d been looking for.
