Rhodes Nails It

Alan Rhodes is a writer for the Cascadia Weekly.  His article, “Channeling the American Literary Canon: Six Dead White Guys and Emily Dickinson Talk About Coal Trains” in this weeks issue, 7/18/12 #29, split my sides with laughter!

When he came to Ernest Hemingway it seems he was truly channeling old Hemmy.
Here’s a peek:

In spring the coal trains came and
they were not good so Pablo and I
blew up the tracks.
then I went home and she was there
and we made love.

“Was it good for you?” she asked
“Yes,” I said, “It was good and right
to blow up the tracks.”
“I meant the sex,” she said.
I did not tell her that blowing up the
tracks was better.

Loved it Alan!  Please check out Cascadia Weekly for more great articles!
