Get out of bed
Save someone's life
End someone's life

Give birth to twins
Adopt a girl from Russia

Marry a carpenter
Divorce him for unfaithfulness

Grab a woman's thigh
And feel how soft

Make a dozen empanadas
And feed it to the poor

Make someone smell the inside of your shoe
Freeze to death

Wrestle an ostrich
Remember the woman that left you
Pierce your nose 
Then pierce your forehead

Go to a corner and hold up a sign that says
End homosexuality, Away with prohibition
I love pie, repent the end is near

Go to a corner and dance with your clothes on
Kiss a woman named after her mother, Georgia
Point a gun at someone

Rip a dictionary in half
Rip Ulysses in half

Write a screenplay in Mandarin
Read Genesis

Put a whole minute on the microwave
Bench-press to Waltz No. 2

Write a letter to your congressman
Feel the cheekbones of a horse 

Drink from the cup 
Leave the cup be

Find a little stream, sit down, be quiet
And listen to it


Go home.
