“Hoping Hemingway”

neither an academic

nor an intellectual,

i am not all that

well-read,

high school education

preparing the way

for my matriculation

into the school of life

where Hemingway

is not as useful

as you might think,

and i write

from the perspective

of one

ignorant of the classics

but well-versed

in the hardships

and realities of

the daily grind,

a common man

going about his business

and still hoping

someday

to read something
