Goals for tonight:
            fly from rocky cliffs
            swim with otters
            simplify the tax code
            engage in a trite oneuppance
            with a drunk cummings

sleep it off
            and dream

To do:
            plumb the more modern lines
            do something Zen
            use Zen as an adverb
            catch my neighbor's eye
            as he does laundry
            hang mine in surrender
hear it flap in the breeze. It's so nice
to be under something else's power
and let it be like sailing,
which I've never done
            and dream
does it rock so —
            or so?

Sew a blanket with sleeves
make a million bucks
shear a sheep — shear anything!
And sell the wool for a trout.
Make breakfast.
