Three Gertrude Stein Inspired Poems

T

Rudy (after Gertrude Stein)

He’s senile.
He’s a scene
I’ve seen
in Aisle C.
He sees the Nile
in Aisle C.
See the scene of the Nile
Seen on the isle?
See the sea
seen in Aisle C?
The sea near this isle
isn’t the scene he sees.
but the isle he sees
isn’t seen
and what we see
is a scene I’ll see
on the isle
of the senile
where senile
starts with C.

I am split between myself
In addition, I got myself over myself
Getting over myself and adding myself once more

Polyhymnia (after Gertrude Stein)

Her hymn is for him
He hears her hymn, she hears him
Humming her his hymns
