The Scamp and Gertrude Stein

NOTHING ELEGANT

A charm is a single charm is doubtful. If the red is rose and there is a gate surrounding it, if inside is let in and there places change then certainly something is upright. It is earnest.

Tender Buttons, 1914

Gertrude Stein saved my date and my failed attempt to woo my boyfriend.

Thank you Ms. Stein.
