Some Men Find It Hard to Finish Sentences, by Robert Bly

May 11, 1997

Sometimes a man can't say

What he . . . A wind comes

And his doors don't rattle. Rain

Comes and his hair is dry.

"There's a lot to keep inside

And a lot to . . . " "Sometimes shame

Means we . . . " Children are cruel.

"He's six and his hands . . . "

Even Hamlet kept passing

The King praying

And the King said,

"There was something . . . "
