From her book Tender Buttons (1914).

(Gertrude Stein)

A bag which was left and not only taken but turned away was not found. The place was shown to be very like the last time. A piece was not exchanged, not a bit of it, a piece was left over. The rest was mismanaged.

  1. and what of the door,
    never opened
    but slammed,
    creating a crack
    in the plaster above,
    a hairline,
    never parted,
    grey roots exposed,
    bared -
    a peekhole.
