Fill it with water.
Place it on the stove.
Turn on the flame.
When tiny bubbles appear and grow wild
Voilà!
It is done.

Pick one thing
one thing you’ve been told
Pick this one thing you’ve been told
and pick
and pick
and keep picking at it
until the scab of unknowing

Sweep into one corner
all your ego.
Set a match to it.

Watch them closely.
Copy what they cease to do.
