Hemingway's NOW

Hemingway's NOW

Nick Adams
lives in the present
which suggests recognition
of a vast impermanence..
As a boy
after witnessing his father
performing cesarian on an
Indian squaw
with the blood and pain
punctuated with her
husband's suicide..
the boy simply stated:
I don't think I will ever die..
That acceptance of life
in that moment
must have been 
simultaneous with knowing
a luminous Present...

"Indian Camp"
