Description

Fragmentary, unabashed, erotic―"Lifting Belly" is a singular lesbian love poem from modernist Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) which lays bare desire and easy intimacy-now in a beautifully packaged edition.

What is it when it’s upset. It isn’t in the room. Moonlight and darkness. Sleep and not sleep. We sleep every night.

What was it.

I said lifting belly.

You didn’t say it.

I said I mean lifting belly.

Don’t misunderstand me.

Do you.

Do you lift everybody in that way.

No.

You are to say No.

Lifting belly.

How are you.

Lifting belly how are you lifting belly.

We like a fire and we don’t mind if it smokes.

Do you.

―From “Lifting Belly”
