‘To Do List’ by John O’Leary

To Do List:

1. find dragon and slay
2. exorcise cat
3. prove conclusively the identity
of Beauty and Truth.

4. watch, fast, pray
5. sail Atlantic single-handed
6. write name in water

7. return Teach Yourself Waltzing Tape
8. weep for Adonais and feel bad
9. write her a letter telling her
you love her

10. go out into the midnight
and check for new stars.
