by Gertrude Stein
Pheasant and chicken, chicken is a peculiar third.
Alas a dirty word, alas a dirty third alas a dirty third, alas a dirty bird.
Alas a doubt in case of more go to say what it is cress. What is it. Mean. Why. Potato. Loaves.
Stick stick call then, stick stick sticking, sticking with a chicken. Sticking in a extra succession, sticking in.
