Today, I am off of work to go on a field trip to a farm with my kids. To celebrate, it's a poem about farm-ish stuff. (365 Poems, Poem 38)


Tender Buttons [Chicken]

  by Gertrude Stein



Hot Actor:
Chris Pine.
(Gotta get Michael Offutt to read
these poems SOMEHOW)
CHICKEN.

Pheasant and chicken, chicken is a peculiar third.

CHICKEN.

Alas a dirty word, alas a dirty third alas a dirty third, alas a dirty bird.

CHICKEN.

Alas a doubt in case of more go to say what it is cress. What is it. Mean. Why. Potato. Loaves.

CHICKEN.

Stick stick call then, stick stick sticking, sticking with a chicken. Sticking in a extra succession, sticking in.
