Gertrude Stein

Pity Pittsburg Pennsylvania

claims Gertrude, rather than Philadelphia.

If the latter then Gertrude Stein

would have been a real Philistine.

Instead we must assert that Gert

emerged with her battling wits from the Pitts.

I’m not at all sure who this poem is trying to imitate – not Gertrude Stein for sure (and apologies to her shade).

The Tirade of Tiresias

Tiresias

 

 

The Tirade of Tiresias

is a tedious tetrametric poem

in which a

typhlotic

transexual

poet

recriminates

tutelary

deities

at interminable length.
