Hemingway’s Way

by Chris Butler

Hemingway’s way
is on an inland island,
where unlovely loners skip
stones over evaporating oceans,
yearning to be kissed by glass lips
protruding from a brown paper dress,
discharging alcoholic spit soaking into
spongy brain cells to vomit one coherent
thought, before performing oral pleasure on
a loaded double barreled twelve gauge shotgun,
just for fun.
