what's left of hemmingway?
i think of rugged individualism as a natural thing not to be hidden nor proud
a love of open decent violence and aggressiveness, but not unconstructive in the end
not killing other humans-of course, but having a moral character tough enough to withstand the wind blowing
not unwilling to be wrong about thinking anything
and standing up for it...being a hu-man
as a weed might find a way to grow through the cracked sidewalk
expressing a thought through word and deed
the cost of fighting for thoughts to be expressed achieving a level not worth the paying
a weed more wicked than the wheat
hybrid complacency instead of a rugged thorn of hu-man.
