American Writer

after Gertrude Stein

imagine her pained
expression we have little
footage of her feelings

happy in Garches
at her brother Michael’s
bemused to read

the libretto
“From Four Saints
in Three Acts”

though where exactly
no one knows I talk

exactly as I write
she says putting on
her glasses 

but exactly -- an adverb
after all she wrote
without them!
