rivers, hemingway, and banana splits

It has become summertime
which of course begs the question:

was Hemingway a good writer
because his life was interesting?
or was his life interesting
because he was a good writer?

whatever the case,
he was both,
so let's not put too much chocolate sauce
on that Cartesian split.

the week before I leave a place,
I want to be alone.

And while I'm coming back in autumn,
this is a goodbye
because we can't ever
step twice into
the same river.
