Certainly, as in a real no body (Stein Poem)

May 11, 2012

Is this certainly a thing happening.
This is no one making no thing.
Perhaps Napolean was making a whole family.
Them having real things in their living.
A something in all their feeling about.
Anybody feels about. Many things.
Many ways of much feeling.
Very much so they can be certain.
Always almost always loving something.
And really alive and having come.
They never come out of real experience.
Certainly there is not. Naturally.
Certainly their having money is no thing.
Certainly they’re not independent.
Men and women. They are living in some body.
No more history, as being feeling was.
No more solid double, as one and was one.
A no one who did not does no thing.
