I gave my life to learning how to live.
Now that I have organized it all, now that
I have finally found out how to keep my clothes
In order, when to wash and when to sew, how
To control my glands and sexual impulses,
How to raise a family, which friends to get
Rid of and which to be loyal to, who
Is phony and who is true, how to get rid of
Ambition and how to be thrifty, now that I have
Finally learned how to be closer to the nude
And secret silence, my life
Is just about over.
