it is time to reduce your life

down to all but the barest

essentials

 

sell the car and buy a bicycle

and sell the bicycle and buy

some shoes

 

and sell the shoes and just

go barefoot, better yet,

go nude

 

leave your house and live

under a tree, or under

the stars

 

or actually the stars are a bit

elaborate in these lean times,

sleep under a black

sky

 

gone are the days of beer and wine

 

gone are the days of cheese and grapes

 

gone are the days of gruel and bricks

 

leave your body behind,

dissipate and diffuse

into atoms

 

do this for your country
