Hands of a Spartan

November 15, 2007
Dad smoking at his favorite spot
A cast iron and wooden bench
the same bench he built with his own hands
Cigarette with glowing ember clenched between his fingers
The other hand stretched across his forehead looking off into the distance.
Dark and rough, these are the hands of a Spartan
Muscular bear paws with veins bulging
Scars from a rough youth
