you know whats a god damn myth, Hemingway

but you know whats not a god damn myth, Hemingway

in fact, he asked the Nazis to leave Bar Hemingway alone,

to leave it for the artists and poets and soldiers, that were the same thing,

in that moment,

and at this moment.

never make the mistake of how blood is shed,

a crime needs an accuser.

ink in blood is different than any material on earth.

myth is a drug, myth is a longing, myth is a lie, myth is a fact lied to.
