Jack London and O. Henry

Jack London and O. Henry

BOTH were jailbirds; no speechmakers at all; speaking best with one foot on a brass rail; a beer glass in the left hand and the right hand employed for gestures.

And both were lights snuffed out… no warning… no lingering:

Who knew the hearts of these boozefighters?



Poem Jack London and O. Henry - Carl Sandburg
