Cleaving gamelan

Gamelan Blue

“Separated by too. This
is neither a sentence nor
a paragraph. A simple
center and a continuous
design.”—Gertrude Stein,
“More Grammar Genia
Berman,” Portraits & Prayers

gertrude does—grammar portraits
turning dialog—and conversation
into paragraphs—and sentences
portraits are done—with words
alice toklas—is a season of seems
when she’s blue—may is blue
what is bluer—when she is blue
my baby loves blue—so do you
