A MOUNTED UMBRELLA
by: Gertrude Stein (1874-1946)
- HAT was the use of not leaving
it there where it would hang what was the use if there was no
chance of ever seeing it come there and show that it was handsome
and right in the way it showed it. The lesson is to learn that
it does show it, that it shows it and that nothing, that there
is nothing, that there is no more to do about it and just so
much more is there plenty of reason for making an exchange.
