Take the sun for instance -- a circle with rays. This is not the sun. Instead, double it.
Smash it. Smear it.
you have the sun, wincing in effigy.
Don't make it yellow. Use bacon grease. I swear. Kick it with your slipper sox. Bore through it with Lawn Darts.
Split it with string, pushing and pulling like a saw. A saw horse, a
sea horse or worse.
Gag it up from the Charley horse where you have been hiding
it. This is no time to hide in the washroom with a jacket.
No time for pencils, small offences, or rocks. Engrave your name near the handprint in the cave.
Fish are schooling in the deep you would avoid. Go there.
You will shine.
