Tender Buttons Poems

Gertrude Stein seems to extract intense emotion and meaning out of everyday ordinary objects and tasks. I am basing my choice of poems around this theme of little yields of pleasure in an ordinary day and focusing on colors and optical textures. A White Hunter, Dirt and Not Copper, Glazed Glitter, A Red Hat, A Blue Coat, and Rooms. I am still editing Rooms to format and have a few other back-up poems to fill more pages or alternate in.
