What is an emotion and what is poison (Stein Poem)

November 6, 2011

What is an emotion and what is poison.
The question is is there an occasion for cleansing.
Or liking the thing that decides how it is.
Just as I can abide without it.
There is plenty of it.
The way it is hard to do is ordinary.
Much loving repeating to it.
Whatever is intended it is accepted.
It would not come in being ripe.
It is a nonentity.
It is a neither neither.
And what is always repeated.
And what is completely different.
Since things are often very much.
So much we have loving feeling.
