Day three!


How to get things done

First, tie a knot
tug on it
that’s a promise
that leaves will stay on trees
that petals will stay on flowers
that you won’t run out of glue
tug on it

Second, observe the quality of light and how
shadows darken the wall as
your hand moves across the paper and its whiteness
slowly darkens
staple it, stamp it, nail it down, set it near the window so
the sunlight can burn into it
pull it tighter

Third, you are doing it
land is in sight
you do not need to know how to swim
