Geography and Plays, by Gertrude Stein

A Poem About Waldberg

What I am afraid of is that they will just attract an awful bombardment on themselves in which they will have to be supported. Oh no they won't do that.

I don't think they will do that. What I think is that I will have to reach the country before I ask myself the way to see the city. I don't mean this as a joke. I know very well that I know all about nurses. Who doesn't. And who would like to see children win. I love my boy very much. His mother feeds him. I can smile and think of it. We both laugh together. Altogether I have said to them keep still.

Curtains a japanese curtain.

Complete flowers.

I never use a pass.

Of course you wouldn't.

You wouldn't be careful enough. I don't mean that.

How can I hear him speak. You don't mean a victim. Eugene Paul. What is Walberg's name.

I don't care for him.

I am not sorry for her.

I do not have flowers here.

Let me see. What do you say. They can take care of riches. Kiss my hand. Why. Because Russians are rich. All Russians are valuable. That is what I said.

I wish I could be as funny as he is.

Yes thank you I believe in Russia.
