The Now

Let’s sing songs that we don’t know the words to.

Let’s have a screaming match in a public library. 

Let’s drink champagne out of each other’s belly buttons.

Let’s have sex in a packed parking lot.  

Let’s walk the city streets giving small change to buskers.  

Let’s eat ice cream in the snow.  

Let’s write a list of all the things we want to do to each other’s genitals.  

Let’s try to understand those who don’t understand us. 

Let’s cover ourselves in paint and fuck on a massive canvas.  

Life will continue after our deaths.

But let it continue today — without us.
