For sale

It is said that Ernest Hemingway once wrote the world’s shortest novel on a paper napkin, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

It seems that he found the words on newspaper ad or magazine, and saw a literary value to them, a story, but I think it is also a haiku, hence this haiga.

 

There is an interesting article about the real author of this six-word story.
