Gertrude Stein: Sentences and Paragraphs, in, How to Write
A sentence is from this time I will make up my mind.
Then they have hurried.
A sentence can be three things they can use. A sentence
can be three things made with hurry.
Come and see me.
Come Thursday and you will see them.
Wait for what you are waiting for.
By the time that it is here they have had it and it is what
I like what they give me. Now all these sentences have
been made with their assistance.
Now make a sentence all alone.
They remember a walk. They remember a part of it. Which
they took with them.
Now who eases a pleasure.
I ought to be a very happy woman.
Premeditated meditation concerns analysis. Now this is a
sentence but it might not be.
Premeditated. That is meditated before medeitation.
Mediation. Means reserved the right to meditate.
Concerns. This cannot be a word in a sentence. Because
it is not of use in itself.
Analysis is a womanly word. It means that they discover
there are laws.
It means that she cannot work as long as this.
It is hard not to while away the time.
It is hard not to remember what it is.
With them they accord in the circumstances.
Sentences make one sigh.
There were three kinds of sentences are there. Do sen-
tences follow the three. There are three kinds of sentences.
And there three kinds of sentences that follow the three.
If his ear is back is it drying. One says there are three kinds
of sentences and every other one is just alike. Butter spreads

Freak Out! Version
Well I’m about to get sick
From watchin’ my TV
Been checkin’ out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it’s gonna change, my friend
Is anybody’s guess
So I’m watchin’ and I’m waitin’
Hopin’ for the best
playing both sides of the broken record…
