I'm still unconvinced - I think it's Prose ..... but what's in a name.
Prose doesn't mean anything to me.

There was/has been a controversy over creative non-fiction. The short part seems relatively new to me. Though I'm sure there have been short nf personal or literary or whatever for ages, it also in some cases over-laps prose poetry. (which I do know what is. )
