He Writes Like Hemingway

At least he does in his correspondence.
He does not waste his words.
He’s mastered the quiet, purposeful nod
used by older generations of men
that conveys all the meaning
with none of the hooplah.
When he says something is nice, it is nice.
When he says he respects your opinion, he does.
And when he says that you’ve convinced him,
he’s convinced you.
