from Tender Buttoms: Objects, Gertrude Stein
A RED STAMP.
If lilies are lily white if they exhaust noise and
distance and even dust, if they dusty will dirt a surface that has no
extreme grace, if they do this and it is not necessary it is not at all
necessary if they do this they need a catalogue.
"Hell, oh hell, hell, objects are made to be consumed like cakes, books, people."
TenderButtoms @theNewYorker, 1934
