THE BIG BITES

(STEIN 8)


Big songs are asking half the regular there there to begin complete hymns higher.


If every this is cooked whole choose the very long and louder.

Laughter's much completer than learning in every four places.

Half the rhubarb shows the way there showing likely greens.

Will abuse clear or refine love's completer happening time.

Blankets completely conclude.


Every excess is a much more pleasant necessity than red refined rhubarb is.


Learning bites.


Conclude that little place is there.


Little is still little little pieces make afternoons nice.





To come best there dearest begin refined.


Half the the there bites.


Derived from a page (and preceding line) of Gertrude Stein's "A Long Gay Book" (A Stein Reader, edited by Ulla E. Dydo, last line of 240 thru 241--determined by a logarithm table) via Charles O. Hartman's program DIASTEX5, his latest automation of one of my diastic procedures developed in 1963, using the 8th paragraph of the source as seed, and subsequent editing: exisions of words; changes of word order, tense, and suffixes within lines; and additions of capitals. periods, spaces, and a few structure words. Some successive output lines are combined.
