Hemingway's Ink

A chalice of red is set down on a wooden table with the force of three men.

Drip -

Drip -

Drips -

Linger on the edge, gripping onto gold as if the blood itself contained a soul.

But, of course not.

The soul is only present in the hand, and within is the rushing blood that fills the chalice.

Alike -

An open vein, an uncapped pen.

Blood released, ink laid down.

Words spoken, creases placed.

Legs cross underneath the wooden table, and the open vein is positioned over parchment.

 

Take a seat and bleed.

This is the rule to writing.

-Ernest Hemingway
