In which I recount reading Stein at Poetry Foundation and upon reflection, do so with altogether too many "I"s. Ick. Bad Poet. Bad. For the record, here is how I chose to read the poem: Mama loves you best because you are Spanish Mama loves you best /because you are Spanish Spanish /or which/ or a day But /whether or /which or /is languish Which or /which /is not Spanish Which or /which not a way They will be manage /or Spanish They will be which /or which manage Which will they /or which to say That they will /which which /they manage They need /they plead/ they will indeed Never to which /which they will need Which is which is not Spanish Fifty which vanish /which which /is not Spanish On Reading Stein : Sina Queyras : Harriet the Blog : The Poetry Foundation
